Relevance of Population Neuroscience for Understanding Human Development Conference

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Daniel P. Keating, Pamela E. Davis-Kean, John E. Schulenberg, Christopher Stephen Monk

To advance the understanding of what makes for optimal human development, developmental neuroscience needs to embrace inter-individual differences and socio-demographic moderators in specifying potential mechanisms, and population science needs to incorporate neurological and other potential mechanisms into their multilevel models. We are an interdisciplinary group of developmental scientists from a range of perspectives that has started to take steps for this mutually beneficial integration, and we believe that this SRCD-sponsored meeting would provide exactly what is needed to move our efforts along to establish the sub-field of Developmental and Population Neuroscience (DPN). Through an advanced interdisciplinary, international meeting, we will begin to integrate developmental neuroscience with population sciences and the many disciplines contained within this span.

Funding Period: 08/01/2013 to 09/15/2014
