Abstract

Views on human brain organization early in development have swung back and forth between the extreme notions of complete equipotentiality and adult-like specialization. Recent research on the cognitive effects of early brain damage supports an intermediate position and suggests that many claims on the older literature must be re-examined in the light of new evidence that cognitive impairments are sometimes attributable to previously ignored factors, such as a history of seizures, time since injury, and unsuspected lesions that are now detectable with neuroimaging techniques.
