Team BabyBRAIN group

In the BabyBRAIN group, we study the development of young children with a multidisciplinary team of researchers. We have backgrounds in (developmental) psychology, cognitive (neuro-)science, movement science, linguistics, and philosophy, and we believe that combining different viewpoints and expertise is essential to understanding the developing mind. In our lab, we value a collaborative attitude, a supportive atmosphere, and learning from one another.

We are based at the Donders Institute for Brain, Cognition and Behaviour in Nijmegen, Netherlands. If you are interested in collaborating with us or doing an internship in our group, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
