Child in Mind Lab

Child in Mind Lab

Child in Mind Lab research activities concern various topics related to social, cognitive and emotional development of children and adolescents, using a big variety of instruments and methods.

Nutrition project: in this longitudinal research project we are following developmental trajectories of children from kindergarten to primary school with the aim of understanding how children develop the concept of healthy nutrition and which are its cognitive/emotional/social correlates.

Impulsiveness project: in this research project we are investigating the development of impulsiveness control both in children and adults through behavioural tasks and neuropsychological tests. In a second phase of the project we will also use electrophysiological and psychophysiological methods.
