Frank Rösler is recognized for his research on biological correlates of cognitive processes, in particular memory, learning, imagery, language, and neural plasticity. He has received several awards, including the Max-Planck/Humboldt prize for international cooperation, and he has been elected as full member in two academies of sciences in Germany.
'The book provides excellent summaries of specific areas of research contributing to the overall thesis of lifespan biocultural co-constructivism. Lifespan Development and the Brain should be required reading …' PsycCritiques
