We joined this year’s (virtual) International Congress of Infant Studies
The FLUX Society for Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience has organized their annual scientific congress from 9th to 12th September. This year, the event had to take place online due to COVID-19 and members from our lab have joined remotely from their homes. The congress offered several poster sessions and a variety of presentations, covering the latest findings on brain development throughout infancy and childhood. Even though most of the program was recorded, there were also live events, regarding skill exchange and sharing experiences between the researchers. One of these sessions, for example, has focused on online testing – the possibility to test participants online from their home and not physically at the research center. This might be a useful tool, especially in times of social distancing.
Despite the advantages of an online conference comes with (recorded sessions can be re-watched); it was not possible to communicate as interactively as it would be the case in a ‘physical’ conference. We therefore hope that we can physically join the next year’s FLUX conference and present the latest findings of our lab in person.
