This book provides the latest information about the development of intersensory perception -- a topic which has recently begun to receive a great deal of attention from researchers studying the general problem of perceptual development. This interest was inspired after the realization that unimodal perception of sensory information is only the first stage of perceptual processing. Under normal conditions, an organism is faced with multiple, multisensory sources of information and its task is to either select a single relevant source of information or select several sources of information and integrate them. In general, perception and action on the basis of multiple sources of information is more efficient and effective. Before greater efficiency and effectiveness can be achieved, however, the organism must be able to integrate the multiple sources of information. By doing so, the organism can then achieve a coherent and unified percept of the world. The various chapters in this book examine the developmental origins of intersensory perceptual capacities by presenting the latest research on the development of intersensory perceptual skills in a variety of different species. By adopting a comparative approach to this problem, this volume as a whole helps uncover similarities as well as differences in the mechanisms underlying the development of intersensory integration. In addition, it shows that there is no longer any doubt that intersensory interactions occur right from the beginning of the developmental process, that the nature of these intersensory interactions changes as development progresses, and that early experience contributes in important ways to these changes.

This important volume defines the state of the art in the field of emotion and memory by offering a blend of research review, unpublished findings, and theory on topics related to its study. As the first contemporary reference source in this area, it summarizes findings on implicit and explicit aspects of emotion and memory, addresses conceptual and methodological difficulties associated with different paradigms and current procedures, and presents broad theoretical perspectives to guide further research. This volume articulates the accomplishments of the field and the points of disagreement, and gives the brain, clinical, and cognitive sciences an invaluable resource for 21st-century researchers. Citing and analyzing the results of experiments as well as field and case studies, the chapters are organized around methodological approaches, biological-evolutionary perspectives, and clinical perspectives, and bring together experts in neuroscience, and both cognitive and clinical psychology. Questions addressed include: * What is the nature of emotional events and what do we retain from them? * Is there something about emotional events that causes them to be processed differently in memory? * Do emotional memories have special characteristics that differ from those produced by "ordinary" memory mechanisms or systems? * Do people with emotional disturbances remember differently than normal people? * Which factors play the most crucial role in functional amnesia?

Important strides have been made in the techniques used to study the immature organism. Here a group of respected developmental psychobiologists, many of whom invented and pioneered these techniques, present contemporary experimental methods in the context of functional themes, such as learning, nutrition, and endocrinology. In each of the chapters, the authors describe how using the new methods changed their way of thinking about development and led to creative ideas about the field of developmental psychobiology. Thus the reader can follow the thinking and actions of the author from the original experimental question to the resulting ideas and follow-up questions. Chapter topics range broadly from cell biology to social learning, and utilize invertebrate and amphibian species as well as mammals. The first part of the book, on Behavioral Systems, is divided into regulatory processes, learning, and ontogenic adaptation. The second part, on Physiological Systems, is divided into chapters on regulation, neural plasticity, and neuropharmacology. The book is full of practical information on how to perform specific techniques, and each author provides more details in the methodology than usually found in published reports. Along with a detailed index, the authors provide a list of vendors for hard-to-find equipment.
