Description

Dynamics of Youth is a multidisciplinary platform that spans all departments of the university. Dynamics of Youth facilitates all researchers in the field of child development. The Early Childhood community specifically focuses on development from conception to six years of age.

Get updated on research in the field of early development. We will discuss the state-of-the-art knowledge in different key disciplines studying early development (from conception to six years of age), including:

  • new insights in the fields of language, motor and cognitive development;
  • attention to the influence of prematurity; and
  • deep dives into subjects such as feeding, sleep, play and daycare.

After an update of your theoretical knowledge in the morning, we will use the afternoon for an in-depth workshop about frequently used techniques, including surveys, machine learning, MRI, EEG and observations. Our experts will help you understand these techniques and provide new insights to take home and try yourself.
