Prof. Nim Tottenham (Columbia University, New York, USA) “Development of Emotion Regulation Neurobiology & the Role of the Parent“.
Humans have the most complex emotional repertoire in the animal kingdom, but it takes a very long time to reach full adult functioning. The nature of emotional brain development maximizes its chances of being influenced by social environments. Variations in early species-typical experiences, such as parental caregiving, reveal the profound effects of such influences on the development of neurocircuitry involved in affective learning and regulation (e.g., amygdala, hippocampus, medial prefrontal cortex). This talk will focus on both typical development as well as development following caregiving-related stress showing that early life environments may influence development through learning and modification of developmental trajectories. These age-related changes will be discussed in terms of potential developmental sensitive periods for environmental influence.
This seminar is organized in cooperation with Neuroschool as a tutored seminar, and it offers to the students the possibility to collect some credits for their doctoral program.
