Our research

The Department of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry and Psychotherapy is part of the research focus Neuroscience and is closely linked to basic and translational neuroscience labs at the Göttingen Campus. We collaborate with clinics and institutes at the University Medical Center (UMG) and the Georg-August University, the German Primate Center and the Leibniz ScienceCampus Primate Cognition, the Max Planck Institutes, and are embedded in a number of national and international consortia. The research of our interdisciplinary labs covers different aspects of child and adolescent development, psychiatric disorders, and developmental neuroscience. Our expertise lies primarily in the following areas:

  • Autism spectrum disorders
  • Infant and early childhood development
  • Functional brain development
  • Development of language and social interaction
  • Cognitive modeling
  • Intervention research
