BASSO, Luciano et al. Growth and motor development of Muzambinho children and adolescents: a research project with academic, social and of inter-institutional political implications. Rev. Port. Cien. Desp. [online]. 2009, vol.9, n.2-3, pp.247-257. ISSN 1645-0523.

This paper presents a broad overview of a mixed-longitudinal study about growth and motor development of children, adolescents and their families from Muzambinho, Brazil. This study is multicenter, linking researchers from Brazil, Mozambique and Portugal aiming at the multifocal investigation about the dynamics of growth and development. It aims also at the interpretation of multiple interactions of a broad array of variables, as well as the varied facets of intraindividual change and interindividual differences. The implications and challenges are highlighted using a multidisciplinary and multicenter approach in Portuguese speaking countries. The study is devised in two phases with semester data collections: the first part sampled 470 subjects from 7 to 12 years divided in 4 cohorts; the second phase included 634 subjects from 6 to 14 years divided in 5 cohorts (linked to the structure of the first phase). We included also 200 nuclear families. We present some of the main research themes for each phase, their academic, social and inter-institutional implications.

Palavras-chave : longitudinal; growth; motor development; nuclear families; motor coordination.
