MeetDr. Marion van den Heuvel,a developmental neuroscientist and Assistant Professor at Tilburg University, whose research is changing the way we understand the brain both before birth and beyond.
In Part I of this series, Associate Web Editors Aislinn Sandre and Kaylin Hill had the opportunity to speak with Dr.van den Heuvel about the exiting research coming from her lab, as well as discuss her path and continued success in the emerging field of developmental neuroscience. We learned lessons about diving into this field, navigating social and technological change as a scientist, and how she has been communicating her research and expertise through her Youtube channel. Our lessons did not end there.
In Part II of this series,Dr.van den Heuvel shares her experiences being at the frontlines of neuroscience research with infants and children. We dig into the day-to-day challenges of running a developmental neuroscience lab and discover practical “tips and tricks” on how to successfully collect psychophysiological data from young populations.
