Research Groups: The Influential Child: The Role of Children's Psychobiology and Socialization in Development

[RG # 136] The Influential Child: The Role of Children's Psychobiology and Socialization in Development

March 1, 2013- August 1, 2013

Organizers:

Maayan Davidov (The Hebrew University)
Ariel Knafo (The Hebrew University)

The research group is comprised of developmental psychologists who have decided to explore a unique perspective within the field of child development: the influential role of children. This perspective is unusual, because the bulk of the research on children's development focuses on how the environment affects the child, not the other way around; our group has set out to examine the opposite direction of influence. This is an extraordinary, unprecendented opportunity for a team of developmental researchers to focus in depth on how children affect their social environment and actively influence their own development.
