Summer School Course on Early Programming

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.
