Bryan Kolb, PhD

May 2010

Dr. Bryan Kolb, from the University of Lethbridge, presents the relationship between brain plasticity and behavioural development, covering the following key concepts: brain development occurring over time; emerging behaviours as they relate to different periods of brain development; brain development altered by experience; peri-natal, pre-natal and post-natal factors that can affect the brain; and the role that gene expression plays on behavioural development.
