If you use '+' in front of a word, then that word will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry +Potter will return results with the word 'Potter'.
If you use '-' in front of a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.
ex: Harry -Potter will return results without the word 'Potter'.
If you use 'AND' between two words, then both of those words will be present in the search results.
ex: Harry AND Potter will return results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'OR' between two words, then bth of those words may or may not be present in the search results.
ex: Harry OR Potter will return results with just 'Harry', results with just 'Potter' and results with both 'Harry' and 'Potter'.
If you use 'NOT' before a word, then that word will be absent in the search results.

Using '*' in a word will perform a wildcard search. The '*' signifies any number of characters. Searches can not start with a wildcard.
ex: Pot*er will return results with words starting with 'Pot' and ending in 'er'. In this case, 'Potter' will be a match.
In the Beginning: The brain, early development and learning explores, synthesises and distils current knowledge of child development at the nexus of neuro-scientific discovery. The book's premise that the brain has a remarkable capacity to change is underpinned by extensive empirical research. With a deft touch and clarity Dr Nagel explains how the environment, relationships and care provided in the earliest stages of life will have a long lasting impact on children's capacity to regulate their emotional responses and ultimately, reach their potential. Compelling, authoritative and highly engaging, In the Beginning provides a wealth of information for a diverse readership - including teachers, health professionals and parents - with a shared interest in how the mind works, and how life's experiences can influence child development and learning.
