About Institute of Child Development University of Minnesota
The Institute of Child Development(ICD)has long been a premier center for scholarship, teaching, and outreach in child psychology. Coursework and research activities focus on the cognitive, social, emotional, and psychobiological/neuroscience processes underlying the development of infants, children, and youth. The University of Minnesota is rich in resources available to ICD faculty, including the Center for Neurobehavioral Development (CNBD), with both low and high density EEG/ERP facilities and complete autonomic laboratory, the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) with two research-dedicated 3T magnets, a Laboratory Preschool housed in the Institute of Child Development, an established subject participant pool within the department, and the many resources afforded in a large metropolitan area. Founded in 1925, the Institute is one of the most established departments for the study of children's development in the United States. From its inception, a key tenet of the department has been to "give away" developmental science. This philosophy has created an environment rich with collaborations, new ideas, and exciting interdisciplinary work.
