Neuropsychology and Child Development Research Group

The aim of our research group is to identify and analyze the protective and risk factors in terms of the neuropsychological functioning of both typically and atypically developing children. Based on the above, our goal is to develop evidence-based prevention and intervention programs to help children achieve optimal cognitive, emotional, motor, language, and social development.

Research topics:
- contribute to the development of a European database of children diagnosed with neurodevelopmental disorders;
- long-term neuropsychological follow-up of children diagnosed with congenital neurological malformation (as part of the VRONY database of the National Center for Public Health);
- the effectiveness of mindfulness in the development of childhood executive functions in typically developing children and children with ADHD;
- stress reactivity of socio-economically disadvantaged children;
- development of interventions targeting pregnant women. Purpose: to assist the child's development through the mother-child relationship, the mother's psychological well-being and the enhancement of parental competence;
- relationships between executive functions and prosocial behavior in early childhood;
- the role of play and parents' play-believes in the development of young chidren's executive function skills.
