BCD604 - The Brain and Cognitive Development

Students will investigate the ways the brain functions, changes over time, and responds to both environmental and genetic factors. Connections between the continuum of development of cognitive skills and the contexts that they develop will be explored. Students will examine the link between early adversity, brain development, and gene expression with the goal of leveraging the science of brain development to support their professional practice. This course will expand on topics that have been introduced in previous development courses such as self-regulation, executive functioning, memory, attention, and learning.
