Emeriti Faculty Lecture Series: Featuring Janet Davidson

Our Emeriti Faculty Lecture series continues! We are excited to bring you this special presentation by Janet Davidson. Keep an eye on our virtual events webpage for details on future presentations. Human Development Across the Lifespan: Who You’ve Been and Who You’ll Be Presented by Associate Professor Emerita of Psychology, Janet Davidson How did you become the person you are today and what will you be like in the future? Human development depends on systematic change and stability across one’s entire life span and it is multidimensional, multidirectional, flexible, contextual, and comparatively complex. Human change and stability begin at conception because of interactions between genes and the environment and continue until death, with several important milestones being reached at various developmental periods along the way. This presentation weaves together neuroscience research and achievements that typically occur during the developmental periods that take place during life’s journey. The goals are to help you discover what it means to develop, how change and stability can be fostered across the lifespan, the many impressive ways you have already developed, and the future accomplishments you can anticipate.
