Hosts: UCL Centre for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience and Birkbeck Centre for Brain & Cognitive Development Autumn Workshop. Attendance is free and open to all staff and students at UCL and other UK institutions. For many years researchers have known that the earliest social interactions have a profound effect on the development of children. More recently, modern neuroscience techniques have allowed them to directly study how genes and experience shape the way infants’ brains perceive, think about and grow with the social world around them. This has enabled better understanding of the normal emergence of the social brain and has opened new approaches for identifying emerging social-emotional problems in infants and toddlers. The UCL-CDCN and CBCD at Birkbeck University of London have joined to invite leading researchers to present the latest developments in the field.
