2015 SRCD Special Topic Meeting

Social Neuroscience Perspectives on Child Development

Leiden, The Netherlands

September 16 – 17, 2015

Deadline is May 17, 2015.

This SRCD Special Topic Meeting (Sept 16 – 17) is being conducted in close partnership with the 3rd Annual Flux Congress: Integrative Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience (Sept 17 – 19). Flux 3 is focused on neurocognitive development and includes sessions on critical periods of brain development in humans and animal models, training the developing brain, and longitudinal studies of neurocognitive development. In addition there will also be a Satellite Symposium on Educational Neuroscience that will be open to attendees of the SRCD meeting and the Flux Congress meeting. Both meetings will take place at the Stadsgehoorzaal, in the heart of the city.

SRCD’s meeting will focus on some exciting advances in developmental social and affective neuroscience, with a strong emphasis on understanding how social experiences actively shape developing neural systems in children and adolescents. The broad goals of this conference are to promote an integrative developmental science approach to understanding social and emotional development. The conference will include special sessions for students, invited keynote speakers, a symposium on the neuroscience of prosocial development, and a closing panel discussion on future directions for this exciting and rapidly growing field.
