Consortium on Individual Development

Work package 4 (WP4) Animal and mathematical models of development

Work package 4 complements the studies in work packages 1-3 with advanced mathematical modelling and animal research. Both behavioural rodent and avian models of social and adaptive behaviour will be used, with the additional possibility of detailed analyses focusing on development of involved brain structures. Mathematical models allow better description of longitudinal effects and ensure better data quality.
