Development of Cognitive Control: Where are We and What's Next?

Maria D. Sera, Nicole Scott

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The chapters in this volume offer evidence on the mechanisms involved in cognitive control, the implication that cognitive control has for other areas of development (and implications that development in other areas have for cognitive control), and on interventions aimed at improving it. In this final chapter, we briefly review the extant evidence in the section entitled, Where Are We? We summarize what we believe are remaining questions and challenges under, What's Next?
