Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course is an basic lecture with the goal of introducing students to

the theory and practice of Developmental Neuropsychology with some

clinical aspects. This subfield of Neuropsychology aims to assess and

interpret the relationship between nervous system function, cognition,

emotion and behavior in developing brain and mind. Students will

acquire knowledge and some skills in methods of development support

through review of both research outcomes and typically developing and

clinical cases.

Pełny opis: (tylko po angielsku)

This course is an basic lecture with the goal of introducing students to

the theory and practice of Developmental Neuropsychology. Child

neuropsychology is the study of brain function and behavior in children

and adolescents. Brain functioning has a direct impact on the behavioral,

cognitive, and psychosocial adjustment of children and adolescents. The

developing brain is highly vulnerable to numerous genetic and/or

environmental conditions that can result in severe childhood disorders.

The relationship between the development of the central nervous

system (CNS) and mind will be discussed. The special focus will be put on

motor and cognitive development – language, memory, executive

functions, but also on emotional and social aspects of development (e.g.

the attachment). Classes will also include subjects related to therapeutic

methods used in developmental neuropsychology like: social skills

training, sensory integration, communication training, and elements of

applied behavior analysis. So, students will also gain some skills in

methods of developmental support.
