Welcome to the New Generation
How do young people successfully grow up in an increasingly complex society?
The Brain and Development Lab examines fundamental changes in human brain function across childhood and adolescence.
The Leiden Brain and Development Lab, founded in 2005 by Eveline Crone, examines fundamental changes in brain function across the life span. Using longitudinal neuroimaging techniques, the lab examines developmental trajectories over time in the domains of self-deve lopment and self-regulation, social learning and prosocial behavior, as well as the predictors of contribution to society. Our motivation is to shed light on developmental processes with a particular focus on the role of social and environmental factors, such as parent and peer interactions.
