Human Neural And Behavioral Development is an interesting and understandable effort of a clinically oriented developmental psychologist to relate neurally based developmental stages and principles of human development. It reports results of her self-education in neurobiological studies while seeking knowledge of how the structuring and functioning of the nervous system might contribute to the development and attributes of human behavior. She writes authoritatively both with imaginative and standard scientific force, without special claim of insight. As Dr. Ralph W. Gerard mentions in his genial but guardful Prefatory Notes, she brings forth "an exciting story."
In addition to her own mind, Professor Esther Milner seeks an operational base for personally meaningful behavior. She attempts to complement her personal understanding through study of neurogenic dynamics. Intelligence and industry are much in evidence in her book. As does each student of neurological meanings, it seems apparent that she has derived much occupational satisfaction
