COMPARATIVE STUDIES OF EARLY BRAIN-BEHAVIORAL RELATIONS

Many of the Network’s projects involve animals, as the examination of brain development often requires methods that would not be practical in humans. In order to better understand the relationship between these animal studies and the Network’s human studies, some of the Network’s work focuses on comparisons between animal brain development and human brain development. These studies will allow the Network to better interpret the findings of animal studies and how they relate to similar human studies, and to conditions found in the human.
