Social Cognition : Development Across the Life Span (Hardcover)
about this item
Social cognition is an integral part of our everyday psychology: the ability to understand other people, and their behavior, plays a central role in our social interactions, underpins our ability to learn from others, and contributes to societal functioning more broadly. This volume brings together a collection of chapters that describe and highlight cutting-edge research on the development of social cognition across the lifespan, combining a diverse array of perspectives ranging form developmental psychology to neuroscience in order to elucidate classic and contemporary issues.
