Continuing the "Neurology and Neurobiology" series, this work examines the profound impact of nutritional and social parameters on the anatomic and neurochemical maturation of the infant brain. It offers up-to-date rehabilitation methods for dealing with some of the problems associated with inadequate nutrition in children. Four major sections cover a variety of topics such as nutrient requirements of the premature infant, elongation and arborization of CNS axons, and vitamin deficiencies and brain development. A comprehensive picture of the social and economic causes, as well as the physical effects of insufficient nutrition in the development of the brain during the crucial first years of life, is provided.
