Abstract

An especially rich vehicle to elucidate the influence of brain development on psychopathology has emerged from work being conducted by investigators in the area of neural plasticity. ... Rather than adhering to a unidimensional belief in the deterministic role that unfolding biology exerts on behavior, a number of theorists operating within this tradition believe that brain function, and its subsequent influence on behavior, possesses self organizing functions that can, in fact, be altered by experience at certain sensitive periods of development that occur across the life course. Moreover, this framework moves ... to a more integrative and dynamic transactional view on development that stresses the importance of both psychological and neural self-organization (pp. 533, Cicchetti & Tucker, 1994).
