Aims and Scope

The purposes of Child Neuropsychology are to (a) publish research on the neuropsychological effects of disorders which effect brain functioning in children and adolescents, (b) publish research on the neuropsychological dimension of development in childhood and adolescence and (c) promote the integration of theory, method and research findings in child/developmental neuropsychology. The primary emphasis of Child Neuropsychology is to publish original empirical research. Theoretical and methodological papers and theoretically relevant case studies are welcome. Critical reviews of topics pertinent to child/developmental neuropsychology are encouraged.
