GIAN course: Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience

This course will introduce students to key concepts, brain imaging methods, and current research on brain and functional development. Key themes of discussion at each stage will be developmental trajectories and timing, representation, plasticity and normal and abnormal development.

Particular emphasis will be placed on the use of noninvasive brain imaging methodologies such as fMRI, fNIRS, and EEG for probing the brain and function across development, from the prenatal period to adolescence.
