Brain development in childhood and adolescence is a crucial component of our long-term health and wellbeing. Patrizia Casaccia, director of the ASRC Neuroscience Initiative and Einstein Professor at Hunter College; Joshua Brumberg, dean of the sciences at the Graduate Center; and others share their current research on how environmental factors influence brain development and, potentially, the course of neurological diseases.
 
Presented with the Advanced Science Research Center at the GC.
