To aid the understanding of the cerebral basis for
In this research project we investigate the brain’s appearance, activity and function and how these factors change in children as they age. We also attempt to map various factors that may affect brain development, such as nutrition, physical activity and genetics. Through studying many healthy children, or what we call a representative sample, over a longer period of time, we can start to understand these relationships.
This project is sub-project of the Norwegian mother and child survey (MoBa), which is one of the world’s largest health surveys.
The participants were recruited through FHI and you can read more about MoBa here: https://www.fhi.no/en/studies/moba/
