Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience explores how the mind changes as children grow up, examining the environmental and biological influences on the developing brain.
You'll be provided with perspectives from developmental cognitive neuroscience and developmental and cognitive psychology, as well as hands-on training in brain imaging methods. You'll explore topical issues such as neural bases of perceiving, acting in the physical and social world and neuroeducation.
