Illuminating Developmental Processes

The DSN-ZH examines the complexity of human development from psychological, educational, sociological, medical, biological and comparative perspectives. Its research encompasses developmental changes across the entire lifespan of an individual human being at different levels and in comparison to non-human species. The methods used combine approaches from basic research, clinical research, translational research and applied research.
