Project description

The postdoctoral project aims to directly investigate the functional organization of the cortico-striatal networks in children with and without motor developmental problems. First, typical developmental changes during motor sequence learning will be compared between children, adolescents and adults on functional brain activation and connectivity parameters. Brain organization will then be compared between typically developing children and children with Developmental Coordination Disorder.
