However longitudinal behavioral studies of this population of children have revealed only mild cognitive deficits and preliminary data from neural damage functional brain imaging studies suggest that alternative patterns of functional organization emerge in the wake of early injury. Neural plasticity and cognitive development is the story of three decades of research on the course and outcome of neurobehavioral development following perinatal brain injury it is a journey through the theoretical and methodological shifts that have occurred since the 1980s as imaging technology has enabled the direct linkage between structure and function in living developing children. Neural plasticity and cognitive development focuses on children who suffered focal brain insult typically stroke in the pre or perinatal period which provides a model for exploring the dynamic nature of early brain and cognitive development. These findings suggest a relatively optimistic story in which neural plasticity is at play in childrens mathematical development following early brain injury. Neural plasticity and cognitive development insights from children with perinatal brain injury joan stiles the advent of modern neurobiological methods over the last three decades has provided overwhelming evidence that it is the interaction of genetic factors and the experience of the individual that
