In the search for causes of neurodisability, it has become increasingly apparent that the placenta is an often overlooked but important provider of etiological clues. This important book from Cambridge University Press is an innovative attempt to investigate the fascinating and complicated links between placental abnormalities and neurodisability. It is the result of 10 years of deliberation by international experts in the field and will be a valuable reference for researchers interested in the origins of neurodisability.
