• New published work from several collaborations


    We’re all about collaborations in this lab, and I’m excited to share that four papers from four different collaborations have been accepted in the past few weeks!
    The first is a true tour de force empirical project led by Theresa Cheng, where she brought together three different studies to investigate the impact of adversity, abuse, and neglect on adolescent amygdala resting-state functional connectivity.
    The second is an empirical investigation to appear in Cortex, led by Lia Ferschmann from the PROMENTA team, investigating how cognitive reappraisal and expressive suppression relate to longitudinal structural brain development across adolescence.
    The third is an empirical investigation led by Andrik Becht at Eramus University, replicating some of our previous work and relating social brain development to friendship quality.
    Finally, last but not least, is a review and resource paper led by Eduard Klapwijk (also at Eramus University), which was the product of a collaboration spurred by a tweet from Eduard proposing a paper full of solutions to increase reproducibility and replicability in developmental neuroimaging.

  • Kate wins remote teaching award

    , ,

    I won a teaching award for adapting my courses to be taught remotely during the spring term. Learn more about the awardees (including Dr. Sara Weston!) here. Adapting my 150-person undergraduate course on developmental psychology to be taught remotely was tough, but I really enjoyed recording short lectures and demonstrations with my two young children. See one here.

  • Big week for Lucy!

    , , ,

    Our lab’s manager, Lucy Whitmore, had a big week! She submitted her independently-designed and written NSF GRFP application and presented at the Society for the Neurobiology of Language symposium: Capturing developmental brain dynamics: methods for longitudinal language research.

  • Flux 2020 presentations!

    Members of the DBIC lab presented at this year’s virtual Flux 2020 conference! Check out Lucy’s poster presentation and Elizabeth’s poster presentation. Kate helped organize and facilitate the pre-conference workshop on using Neuropointillist in the cloud, and you can access the tutorial here.

  • New lab website

    We are so thrilled to have a new website, developed and designed by the inimitable Jonny Saunders.
