Regulation – a multilayered construct defined by the interplay of excitation and inhibition –undergoes substantial development across the first decade of life, is supported by bottom-up processes, and matures in the context of parent-infant synchrony and the neurobiology of affiliation. The talk will chart a biobehavioral perspective on the development More
What strategies can children use to facilitate self-control? First, they can choose their physical or social circumstances or change them to their advantage. Next, they can selectively attend to particular features of their situations or represent their situations in particular ways.
