Growing Brains


Are you fascinated by the brain? Are you wondering about how brain and mental health are related? Are you curious about lifelong learning? Do you sometimes puzzle over adolescents' behavior? All of these are closely connected with the development of our brain. With Growing Brains, we want to promote knowledge about how our brain and behavior develop, and how this relates to our mental and physical health. But we also want to contribute to a better understanding of how science actually works. Join us on our knowledge journey!


Our project

Everything about our initiative Growing Brains

Our brain is what truly makes us human. It influences our perception, our behavior, and our health. It enables us to collaborate and to tackle complex problems within a society. Generating public knowledge and creating awareness around the developing brain is part of the mission of our research group. That is why we have launched the science outreach initiative Growing Brains.  Learn more >>
