In the Beginning: The brain, early development and learning explores, synthesises and distils current knowledge of child development at the nexus of neuro-scientific discovery. The book's premise that the brain has a remarkable capacity to change is underpinned by extensive empirical research. With a deft touch and clarity Dr Nagel explains how the environment, relationships and care provided in the earliest stages of life will have a long lasting impact on children's capacity to regulate their emotional responses and ultimately, reach their potential. Compelling, authoritative and highly engaging, In the Beginning provides a wealth of information for a diverse readership - including teachers, health professionals and parents - with a shared interest in how the mind works, and how life's experiences can influence child development and learning.
