The Brain and Development Laboratory explores the relation between brain development and cognitive and affective development in school-aged children and adolescents. A special focus of the lab is to investigate how brain development, including changes in function and connectivity, relates to typical and atypical development of cognitive control, decision-making and self-regulation, and how these functions are sensitive to training, reward incentives and social context. Our goals are to shed light not only on classic developmental questions related to mechanisms underlying developmental change, but also on the pathogenesis of various developmental disorders.
