The Psychobiology of Affective Development

By Nathan A. Fox; Richard J. Davidson | Go to book overview

should be more intimately connected. If we have increased the desire of neuropsychologists to read more widely in the developmental literature and vice versa, then we will have accomplished one of our major aims.

To the best of our knowledge, this is the first volume on this topic to ever appear. It is clear that this is an emerging area of study which holds a great deal of promise and excitement. We hope that this volume will be the first of many and will help stimulate the development of an interdisciplinary approach to the study of affective development.

We would like to thank the Society for Research in Child Development for providing the initial funding for our SRCD Study Group. Many of the participants in that group have kindly contributed to the present volume. We also wish to thank the Foundation for Child Development and particularly Heidi Sigal for the financial support of our research in this area. Jerry Kagan was one of the first to kindle each of our interests in this area and he has continued to enthusiastically support our efforts. Joe Campos has been an extremely helpful source of guidance throughout the initial planning for both the Study Group as well as our own research in this area. Finally, we thank Betsy, Susan, and Amelie for providing a stimulating affective context in which our collaborations could flourish.
