The new 2016 issue of G2B REVIEWS brings the question of development into focus with a collection of reviews by researchers who are leading efforts to understand how brain and behavior are shaped during the formative years of early life, and decipher the mechanisms by which genes and early environmental experience impact risk for an array of mental illnesses. This collection of 12 reviews provides a very timely perspective on the current state of developmental research across a range of fields and illuminates some of the exciting paths this work is bound for in the coming years.
