2019 Developmental Affective Neuroscience Symposium


2019 Developmental Affective Neuroscience Symposium

featuring national experts in the field of Developmental Affective Neuroscience

Be sure to mark your calendars and join us November 6-8, 2019 for the Developmental Affective Neuroscience Symposium (DANS) at the University Club on the Oakland campus. A welcome reception and NIH roundtables will take place on the evening of November 6, 2019.

This year’s theme is Developmental Trajectories of Affective Systems. 

This meeting provides a collaborative forum for researchers conducting basic (animal/human) and clinically relevant research within a developmental affective neuroscience framework.

The intended audience of the symposium is researchers and trainees from the fields of psychiatry, psychology, neuroscience, and related disciplines who are interested in investigating emotions, mood, affective development, and affective disorders (depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety disorders and other related comorbid disorders) from a neuroscience perspective.

While presentations may focus on both typically developing and clinical samples, all work will have relevance to understanding developmental psychopathology. DANS is focused on translational research in developmental affective neuroscience. Presentations will range from basic (animal/human) to clinical, and may include a variety of neuroscience approaches (i.e., fMRI, EEG, molecular) as well as clinical or behavioral studies that are relevant to neuroscience models of affective development.
