Summary This volume highlights the importance of scientific progress that has been made in the understanding of the neurodevelopmental origins of psychopathology. The chapters illustrate the interactional processes that characterize the genesis and maturation of the brain. They demonstrate how constitutional vulnerability to mental disorder can arise from the interplay of multiple factors, some specific and some nonspecific.
