National Institute of Mental Health Director’s Innovation Speaker Series
The goals of these NIMH lectures are to promote innovation, invention, and scientific discovery, to encourage broad, interdisciplinary thinking in the development of scientific initiatives and programs, and to press for theoretical leaps in science over the continuation of incremental thought.
Recent lectures pertaining to child neurodevelopment include: Dr Cynthia Rogers, Addressing Social Determinants to Optimize Infant Brain Development, https://youtu.be/HfgKhibUsrw,
and Dr Damien Fair, Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience in the Era of Big Data, https://youtu.be/A7hWg8Pl8Z8.
