(Early) life stress, brain development and ageing
Professor Bea Van den Bergh and Professor Katri Räikkönen present:
A symposium on methods in measuring cognition and brain function throughout life.
Tilburg University, Tilburg, the Netherlands, March 2nd, 2011
At this symposium internationally well known researchers and clinicians will present and discuss how human brain development/ageing and cognitive function can be measured with specific methods throughout life, from fetal life until old age. In addition, empirical evidence of lifelong programming of human brain development/ageing and cognitive function by (early) life stress, in interaction with genetic and epigenetic factors will be presented. The symposium consists of two parts: part one covers the early life period and part two focuses on adulthood and old age. The life span view we propose is vital in the developmental programming research and with our symposium we want to promote this view. It is important to note that most presentations will focus on methods that can be used within as well as outside clinical context in smaller or large cohort follow-up studies. All invited speakers are outstanding experts in the field of cognition and/or brain function.
