The Bucharest Early Intervention Project
The Bucharest Early Intervention Project is a joint collaboration between researchers at Tulane University, University of Maryland, and Children's Hospital Boston.
The study, which began in the fall of 2000, seeks to examine the effects of early institutionalization on brain and behavior development, and to examine the impact of high quality foster care as an intervention for children who have been placed in institutions.
To date we have followed children from infancy through age twelve, assessing a wide range of developmental domains including measure of physical growth, cognitive function, social-emotional development, attachment, brain development, and more.
