Scientists in the now well-established field of cognitive neuroscience have made significant progress in elucidating the neural substrates and cognitive processing underpinnings of a wide range of cognitive functions. However, its focus has been predominantly on typical adult function; much less attention has been given to typical and atypical development. However, cognitive neuroscientific methods hold considerable promise for significantly advancing explanations for the basis for many conditions that produce intellectual and developmental disabilities. Also, because of their neurobiological and mechanistic strengths, these methods are likely to lead to rapid progress towards a range of interventions. In keeping with the AJMR editorial board's goal of encouraging publication of relevant articles from cognitive neuroscience, we are pleased to announce a call for submissions for the Special Issue on Cognitive Neuroscience Studies. The purpose of this special issue is to provide a rare opportunity to present a...
