    The interdisciplinary field of developmental cognitive neuroscience has emerged recently, and is largely focused on human postnatal structural and functional brain development. Three prominent frameworks currently dominate the field; a maturational viewpoint, skill learning, and interactive specialization (IS). Underlying assumptions of, and predictions derived from, these viewpoints are presented. Overall, IS is found to be most compatible with a broad array of evidence from neuroimaging, developmental disorders, or atypical early environments. Future challenges for this approach, and for the field in general, are discussed.
