Leiden Consortium Individual Development (LCID)

Why are not all children equally responsive to variations in the social environment?

Self concept

Self-report is sensitive to response bias. Different components of self-concept can be reliably assessed using functional neuroimaging

Brainlinks

Prosocial behaviour strongly develops during adolescence.

Braintime

Investigating developmental changes in cognitive control, impulse regulation and social-emotional functions during childhood, adolescence and emerging adulthood

RESIST

Investigating self-concept, aggression regulation and vicarious reward learning in youth who have been arrested by the police before the age of twelve years.

Leiden Consortium Individual Development (LCID)

Most children develop well and find their way into society without many problems, but not all children manage to do so. We know that this difference is related to a combination of the child’s disposition and the environment in which …

RESIST

The primary aim of our Research on Individual Antisocial Trajectories (RESIST) is to gain insight into individual developmental trajectories in young adults with a history of antisocial behavior. We do this by studying several underlying psychological and neurobiological mechanisms.

For …

Brainlinks

In several of our studies, we examine adolescence as a period of social influence. We are interested in understanding under which circumstances adolescents are more prone to give to others. We also aim to understand which adolescents are more sensitive …

Self concept

There is a great and longstanding interest in self-concept development in adolescence. However, it has been difficult to measure this construct, because self-concept is not observable in behavior and self-report is sensitive to response bias.

It is well known that …

Braintime

One of the main challenges of developmental cognitive neuroscience studies is to track changes in brain and behavior longitudinally. Within this research line we  investigated developmental changes in childhood, adolescence and emerging adulthood in three domains: cognitive control, impulse regulation …
