This book is the outgrowth of a memorial conference to honor the scientific contributions of Robert B. Cairns, an internationally recognized interdisciplinary developmental scientist. It is organized around research themes that were an integral part of Dr Cairns' theories and research: neural and developmental plasticity; brain-behavior bidirectionality; gene-environment interactions. Throughout this book, these themes are linked together by employing animal models and clinical investigations through multiple levels of analysis approach to understanding the origins, development, desistance and prevention of aggression. These studies will add to the compendium of basic knowledge on the developmental psychobiology of aggression and will aid in the ultimate translation of this knowledge to clinical and community settings. This book hopes to foster the legacy of Robert B. Cairns to facilitate the theoretical development and research of a new generation of developmental scientists dedicated to relieving the tragic consequences of aggression on the individual and society.
