Hello Baby from Priddy Books is a range of very first, high-contrast black and white books for babies from birth, designed with clearly-defined patterns to provide optimum visual stimulation for the first weeks and months of baby's life. This very first cloth book has deeply padded, soft-to-touch cloth pages for little hands to touch and feel, and a shiny mirror to look into.
The ability to move unrestrictedly is key to an infant's cognitive development. Impairment in this area can indicate an array of disorders such as autism, cerebral palsy, and genetic diseasesâand in these cases, early detection and intervention is imperative.
In Newborn Movement Assessment, author and movement integration specialist Michelle M. Turner offers a comprehensive guide to help determine a babyâs developmental concerns, as well as provide effective treatments to stimulate the childâs movement patterns through gentle touch.
Through step-by-step instructions for evaluating a childâs birthing process, assessing the rotation, and introducing a healthy touch, Turner shows you how to catch an infant's lack of response to movement immediately upon birth. She then offers the necessary tools to help you assess and change the baby's ability to react to stimulus, with the ultimate goal of improving the newbornâs cognitive development.
In the vein of What to Expect the First Year and What to Expect When the New Baby Comes Home by Heidi Murkoff and Sharon Mazel, this comprehensive guide empowers both parents and professionals alike to assess and integrate a newborn's growth.

Cognitive Enhancement: Pharmacologic, Environmental and Genetic Factors addresses the gap that exists in research on the topic, gathering multidisciplinary knowledge and tools that help the reader understand the basics of cognitive enhancement. It also provides assistance in designing procedures and pharmacological approaches to further the use of novel cognitive enhancers, a field that offers potential benefit to a variety of populations, including those with neurologic and psychiatric disorders, mild aging-related cognitive impairment, and those who want to improve intellectual performance.
The text builds on our knowledge of the molecular/cellular basis of cognitive function, offering the technological developments that may soon enhance cognition. Separate sections cover enhancement drugs, environmental conditions, and genetic factors in terms of both human and animal studies, including both healthy/young and aging/diseased individuals.
