The CDBB develops scientific initiatives and supports research and research training relevant to the psychological, neurobiological, language, behavioral, and educational development and health of children.
The following theme characterizes all Branch programs: Development is best described and studied as a variable process in which individual differences in cognitive, social, emotional, language, neurobiological and physical maturation, environment, life experiences, and genetics interact in complex ways.

Cincinnati MRI of Neurodevelopment (C-Mind) Project
aims to create standardized methods for recruiting, scanning, and processing data using functional MRI (fMRI) coupled with arterial spin labeling perfusion and to investigate language development and attention brain processes of typically developing children using task fMRI.
is a an open data library for developmental science repository of video, audio, and related metadata from developmental research projects by developmental researchers world-wide. The Databrary site also offers tools for coding your videos, identifying patterns, and visualizing your data. These tools are free and can help you with data management and organizing your resources.
