Early Programming: How Early Life Shapes Human Development
Nijmegen, August 3-7
During the prenatal and early postnatal years, human neurobiological and behavioral development proceeds at a breathtaking pace and is highly sensitive to environmental influence. Early experience shapes early and long-term developmental outcomes.
In this course you will learn about the effects of early experience on human development, and more specifically, on health, cognition, physiology, and socio-emotional development. Factors that play a role in our development will be approached from different perspectives, with special attention to evolutionary, biological, psychological and social perspectives.
The course is intrinsically interdisciplinary and will cover a broad range of topics. During the program you will follow lectures and a variety of individual and small group assignments that will be discussed in plenary sessions. You will receive a reader with a selection of literature.
