The brain, one of the most complex structures in nature, undergoes rapid and complex changes during embryonic and fetal life that reach far into postnatal development. Additionally, the maternal brain changes during gestation. Recent technical developments in neuroscience have brought closer together basic neurodevelopmental research and clinical neurosciences, since life history may shape disease susceptibility and progression in adulthood and senescence. Several research groups with an interest in different aspects of brain development and plasticity are spread through TNC member institutions. This Neuro Campus Initiative aims to raise awareness for developmental neuroscience questions within the TNC and provide a platform for exchange that fosters collaborations with the long-term goal of strengthening a developmental neuroscience research focus within the TNC. 


Furthermore, Simone Mayer is currently for collaborations. So if you are interested in this topic, please contact her.
