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.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
