David I. Mostofsky is Professor of Psychology and Director of the Laboratory for Behavioral Medicine Research at Boston University. He has written more than 100 journal articles, monographs and chapters in edited volumes describing his research.
Professor David I. Mostofsky has done it again. He has edited a wonderful book presenting a point of view that differs markedly from most works of this kind.
