Sorbonne University in Paris, France
The Fetal, Infant, and Toddler Neuroimaging Group (FIT’NG) is pleased to announce its first annual conference. Human brain development is a complex process beginning in the weeks following conception and involving a rapid progression of events through the first years of life. Advancing understanding of early neurodevelopmental processes represents a critical means of addressing the root causes of neurodevelopmental and other psychiatric disorders, and increasing capacity to support educational and occupational attainment. The rapidly growing field of fetal, infant, and toddler neuroimaging demonstrates potential to transform this area.
As the field is still nascent, fetal, infant, and toddler neuroimagers have primarily worked in small silos, rather than as a larger community. Leading researchers come from various departments and backgrounds (e.g., Psychology, Psychiatry, Neuroscience, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science), and attend diverse scientific meetings—none with a specific focus on fetal, infant, and toddler brain imaging. The FIT’NG meeting will provide a unique forum for collaboration and training amongst researchers focused on advancing understanding of early brain development in the context of environmental influences and clinical outcomes, and those with the methodological and technical expertise to facilitate optimal data acquisition, processing, and analyses. The conference will focus on sharing and stimulating cutting edge research, spurring collaboration, and supporting the development of the next generation of researchers through highlighting the work of underrepresented minority and early career scientists, and creating opportunities for collaboration. We are pleased to offer $600 travel awards to trainees with outstanding abstracts.
