Social Origins of Executive Function Development
Carlson, Stephanie M.
New Directions for Child and Adolescent Development, n123 p87-98 Spr 2009
The chapters in this issue revisit the social origins of the development of executive function (EF) through both empirical examination of the contexts in which EF development occurs (in vivo), as well as its social antecedents and consequences. Importantly, they also point to new directions in studying the social foundations of neurodevelopment, novel methods that take the social context into account, and cultural influences on EF development.
