The course of individual development involves not only reciprocal signaling among cell types, but interactional processes occurring in the social environment, principally the family. In this process the family is seen to play a major role in shaping individual development leading to a range of functioning observable in adulthood.
The emerging field of social neuroscience is establishing the significant role the social environment plays in brain development but has largely overlooked the family as a distinct environment. This presentation will discuss development as a process of the differentiation of individuals in the context of the family unit. The process is viewed as resulting in both varying degrees of emotional autonomy and the differentiation of the functioning of higher cortical systems and their role in self-regulation.
A case example will illustrate some aspects of this process.
