Overview

Temperament establishes a bridge between behaviorally oriented researchers, who start with key behavioral patterns and look for associated neural processes, and biologically oriented researchers, who start from known biological events and try to predict the behavioral patterns associated with them. Leading investigators describe the neural processes, brain development, and genetics thought to be involved in the coding and creation of temperament. They also examine the biological roots of such behaviors as impulsivity and the ability to cope with stress. Most important, they extend the findings to postulate how biological differences contribute to individual development differences on these dimensions.
