Despite tremendous progress in developmental neurobiology over the past two decades, we know less than the public believes we do about human brain development and even less about the role of experience in sculpting the developing brain. While we recognize that the first two to three years of life are critical in fostering healthy neural and psychological development, we have strikingly little data on exactly which aspects of experience are essential to development or how experience works itself into the structure of the developing brain. The goal of the Network on Early Experience and Brain Development is to study the relationship between brain and behavioral development, to clarify the role of experience in brain development, and to enhance the understanding of how neurobiological development and behavioral development are linked. The network bridges three related disciplines: developmental psychology, developmental neurobiology, and various pediatric subdisciplines.
