The results show a high percentage of children in this age group with some kind of psychopathological symptom. According to the researchers, detecting these is vital since at this age children can be treated to prevent psychopathological symptoms appearing at a later stage.
The objective of the research carried out by the Unit is to generate awareness of psychopathologies in pre-school children, particularly in schools and in educational psychologists. The aim is that these not only focus on children with language disorders, developmental delay, etc, but also on the whole of this population, based on the idea that improving prevention is much easier with children of this age group.
This age group is crucial for the future, since 99% of children who do not suffer from any kind of disruptive behaviour do not develop these disorders in later life. By contrast, those who do suffer from disruptive behaviour continue to have the same problem five years later or develop some other kind of disorder.
The concern and the studies focused on this age group are very recent. The researchers have found that many of the problems and disorders found at later stages in life begin during this period of childhood. This is the first time anyone has studied the problem in Catalonia. The geographical location is a very important factor for this kind of study, which is why the data from studies carried out in other countries can only be used as a guide and it is vital to carry out fieldwork at the same location.
The study consists of various field studies that look into the psychopathological disorders in pre-school children from different perspectives: the different ways in which these disorders develop in children living in an urban environment and those living in a rural environment, the appearance of physical symptoms, the development of eating disorders due to psychosocial factors, the difference between parents and teachers in the detection of symptoms of depression, etc.

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).
Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
