Carolina de Weerth:
Early Programming of Development and Health: the Role of Psychobiological Factors
Carolina de Weerth is a biologist that obtained her PhD in Developmental Psychology in 1998 at the University of Groningen. She is now Full Professor of Psychobiology of Early Development at the Behavioral Science Institute, Radboud University, The Netherlands. Her interdisciplinary research focuses on how early prenatal and postnatal environmental factors influence a child’s physical and psychological development. Prof. de Weerth leads the Developmental Psychobiology Lab (DPBlab) and her research topics include maternal prenatal stress and anxiety, the development of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis and the intestinal microbiota, and children’s behavioral and emotional regulation.
David Bridgett:
Influence of maternal self-regulation (focus on executive functioning) on family processes, and the transmission of self-regulation across generations
David Bridgett is an Associate Professor in the Department of Psychology at Northern Illinois University, US. He received his doctorate in Clinical Psychology, with a focus on developmental psychopathology, from Washington State University in 2008. He completed his pre-doctoral clinical internship at the Yale Child Study Center in the Yale School of Medicine (2007-2008), where he also completed a postdoctoral fellowship (2008-2009). Currently, his research is focused on mechanisms involved in the intergenerational transmission of self-regulatory processes, such as executive functioning, factors influencing temperament development during early childhood, and the interplay among young children's self-regulation, temperament, stress response and family environments in association with early behavioral, emotional and health outcomes.
