Between the 8th and 12th of July, 2019, the University of Utrecht organises the 3rd edition of the summer school on neurocognitive methods in infant and toddler research.
The field of developmental cognitive neuroscience has made great progress over the past decades. To take it to the next level will require codification, innovation and further integration of experimental methodologies and quantitative aspects of data interpretation. The current summer school will acquaint students with a number of methods frequently applied in brain, cognition and behaviour research with infants and toddlers. Specifically, it will sensitize students to methodological decisions that might affect reliability, replicability, and validity, and have them explore how to apply this knowledge to their own research projects.
The summer school will include lectures from experts in various techniques, interactive discussion sessions, hands-on analysis sessions, student presentations, and a one-day symposium on methodological considerations in infants and toddler research.
- Celeste Kidd – Behavioral methods and the Goldilocks effect in cognitive research
- Emily Jones – EEG research to study social development
- Jacco van Elst – Application of Eyetracking in infants
- Manon Benders – Novel methods: MRI research to study brain development in infants
- Carlijn van den Boomen – Novel methods: The basics of fNIRS research
Participation is open to students at advanced master or PhD level. Attendance fee will be € 250, including attendance to the summer school, the symposium, daily lunch, and the summer school dinner, excluding housing (€ 200) and travel costs. The registration deadline for the Summer school is June 1st, 2019. There is no registration deadline for housing, however it is first come, first serve, so register as soon as possible!
