In recent years our approach to neurodevelopmental disorders has undergone extraordinary change. This has resulted from tremendous progress in various several disciplines including developmental neuroscience, behavioural and molecular genetics, and developmental neurobiology, and from the very high quality now achievable in neuroimaging and neurophysiological techniques.

This publication aims to provide a concise and interdisciplinary approach to the study of the different cognitive/behavioural phenotypes encountered in a wide range of neurodevelopmental disorders. Starting from methodological, nosographic, and assessment premises, the book deals with selected disorders of a defined but still complex genetic aetiology, and concludes with a description of the neuropsychiatric disorders that are most commonly encountered during development.


  • Neurodevelopmental disorders from a cognitive neurosciences perspective
  • Defining behavioural phenotypes: exploring phenotype/genotype interrelationships
  • Tools for assessment of the cognitive and behavioural phenotype
  • Fragile X syndrome: molecular clinical correlations including an emerging new phenotype in carriers
  • Linking behaviour, brain, and genes in two different genetic syndromes
  • Turner syndrome: genetic and hormonal influences in the neurocognitive profile
  • Tuberous sclerosis complex: from genes to behavioural and cognitive phenotypes
  • Cognitive phenotype of Duchenne muscular dystrophy
  • The cognitive/behavioural phenotype in autism
  • Behavioural and cognitive phenotypes of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • Cognitive phenotypes of mood disorders: neurobiological correlates
  • Gilles De La Tourette syndrome and the obsessive-compulsive spectrum
