Adrenocortical Activity and Emotion Regulation.
Stansbury, Kathy; Gunnar, Megan R.
Monographs of the Society for Research in Child Development, v59 n2-3 p108-34 1994
This essay argues that the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenocortical (HPA) system does not appear to be related to emotion regulation processes in children, although individual differences in emotion processes related to negative emotion temperaments appear to be associated with individual differences in HPA reactivity among normally developing children.
