In Science: Episode 9 - Steffie van der Steen

Animal-assisted therapy in working with children with Down syndrome or autism is gaining popularity. But does it really work - and if so, how? Dr. Steffie van der Steen is interviewed by Wim Brons and Arjen Dijkstra about her research on animal-assisted therapy. Arjen brings us the latest news in science and as part of the Intellectual Property (IP) week there's an interview with members of the Oceangrazer project and the IP-team.
