Introduction: Links between Social Interaction and Executive Function
Lewis, Charlie; Carpendale, Jeremy I. M.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n123 p1-15 Spr 2009
The term executive function is used increasingly within developmental psychology and is often taken to refer to unfolding brain processes. We trace the origins of research on executive function to show that the link with social interaction has a long history. We suggest that a recent frenzy of research exploring methods for studying individual executive skills should pay more attention to the tradition exploring the role of social interaction in their development.
