Neurodevelopmental disorders refer to conditions of impaired cognitive and motor functions stemming from an atypical development of the brain. They affect executive functions, emotion, learning and memory, and motor functions and the symptoms unfold over time.
The most common neurodevelopmental disorders are ADHD, autism spectrum disorders, language disorders and dyslexia, mental retardation, cerebral palsy and acquired brain injuries.
The research aims at understanding the complex gene versus environmental interactions that causes the disorders and find new targets for prevention and intervention.
