Cognitive control across adolescence: dynamic adjustments and mind-wandering
24 October 2019
Mate Gyurkovics, Tom Stafford and Liat Levita have had a new paper published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General.
In this paper they examined how the ability to dynamically adjust the levels of cognitive control changes across adolescence. Using two tasks of response inhibition, they found no age-relate differences in these dynamic control adjustments, while general performance improved with age.
These findings suggest that not all aspects of cognitive control mature at a similar pace. More information about the study can be found at the project’s OSF page.
