The Neuroscience of Human Relationships: Attachment and the Developing Social Brain

by

The Neuroscience of Human Relationships: Attachment and the Developing Social Brain Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Just as neurons communicate through mutual stimulation, brains strive to connect with one another. Louis Cozolino shows us how brains are highly social organisms. Balancing cogent explanation with instructive brain diagrams, he presents an atlas of sorts, illustrating how the architecture and development of brain systems from before birth through adulthood determine how we interact with others.

Book News Annotation:

The successful daughter of the more-than-middling sort would have a wonderful life, were it not for the panic attacks. Another woman, moved about by her parents' ambitions and driven to compete with her brother for what scraps of attention tossed them alludes to suicide. What part does the structure and function of the brain, as formed in early years, have to do with their lives? With case studies and emerging findings from neuroscience, Cozolino (psychology, Pepperdine U.) asserts that the brain is a social organ, a combination of biology and experience, and capable and worthy of healing. He describes the study of the social and evolving brain, social and emotional conditions in the developing brain, experience-dependence plasticity, creating attachment through reflexes and instincts, using implicit social memory and the need to love, and ways of attaching to redevelop the brain.
