We know that early childhood trauma profoundly impacts a child’s development and functioning levels, such as emotional, cognitive, behavioural, social, relational, physical and neurobiological, reaching far into adulthood. In that sense, e.g. infant male circumcision may bear long-term psychological effects impacting adult socio-affective behaviour.
My team and I explore complex human behaviours using tools ranging from neuroimaging to psychological testing. As an intern, you will be part of an active interdisciplinary and international research group. I have ten years of experience in neuroscience, and my research group brings together students from medical, biological sciences, and engineering faculties in the development and application of neuroimaging and neurosciences.
