Lifespan Brain Institute at Penn Virtual Seminar Series

24 September, 2020

The Lifespan Brain Institute (LiBI) is dedicated to studying how the brain and behavior develop and change over time and in response to different illnesses. This collaboration between the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and the University of Pennsylvania bridges the gap between pediatric and adult research, making it possible for researchers to begin studying participants at a young age and to continue to follow them into adulthood. With this lifespan approach, researchers are able to study what early risk factors might contribute to the development of mental disorders, what factors might protect children from developing mental disorders or help them cope more effectively, and how illnessess might affect brain and behavior.
