Nelson, Timothy D.; James, Tiffany D.; Nelson, Jennifer Mize; Tomaso, Cara C.; Espy, Kimberly Andrews – Developmental Psychology, 2022
This study examined the factor structure of executive control throughout elementary school, as well as associations between executive control abilities in preschool and elementary school. Data were drawn from a longitudinal study of executive control development in a community sample of children (N = 294; 53% female, 47% male) oversampled for low…

Wang, Shi; Zhang, Fan; Tang, Qiu; Zhang, Xiaogang; Zhao, Renxin – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2022
Contribution: This article presents a teaching experiment platform for an undergraduate laboratory program designed to fulfill the needs of control engineering classroom experiment teaching. The teaching experiment platform is a cost-effective teaching tool that can be promoted on a large scale in colleges and universities. The teaching experiment…

Thompson, Greg – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2022
This paper maps Hardt and Negri's use of Deleuze (and Guattari's) philosophical commitment to the control society as a temporal phenomena in the context of education. Education is important because it is pushed and pulled by those vectors that Hardt and Negri see as central tensions in late capitalism: localism vs globalisation, discipline vs…

Volkmer, Sindram; Wetzel, Nicole; Widmann, Andreas; Scharf, Florian – Developmental Science, 2022
The ability to shield against distraction while focusing on a task requires the operation of executive functions and is essential for successful learning. We investigated the short-term dynamics of distraction control in a data set of 269 children aged 4-10 years and 51 adults pooled from three studies using multilevel models. Participants…

Hendry, Alexandra; Agyapong, Mary A.; D'Souza, Hana; Frick, Matilda A.; Portugal, Ana Maria; Konke, Linn Andersson; Cloke, Hamish; Bedford, Rachael; Smith, Tim J.; Karmiloff-Smith, Annette; Jones, Emily J. H.; Charman, Tony; Brocki, Karin C. – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Low inhibitory control (IC) is sometimes associated with enhanced problem-solving amongst adults, yet for young children high IC is primarily framed as inherently better than low IC. Here, we explore associations between IC and performance on a novel problem-solving task, amongst 102 English 2- and 3-year-olds (Study 1) and 84 Swedish children,…

Frith, Emily; Kane, Michael J.; Welhaf, Matthew S.; Christensen, Alexander P.; Silvia, Paul J.; Beaty, Roger E. – Creativity Research Journal, 2021
Increasing research efforts are focused on explaining the cognitive bases of creativity. However, it remains unclear when and how cognitive factors such as intelligence and executive function uniquely contribute to performance on creative thinking tasks. Although a relationship between fluid intelligence (Gf) and creative cognition has been…

Teeranate, Kittirit; Singhapreecha, Pornsiri – LEARN Journal: Language Education and Acquisition Research Network, 2022
This study investigated the acquisition of English "control" and "raising" ("over Experiencer") constructions with three groups of Thai EFL learners (lower intermediate, intermediate, and advanced). Thai and English, with respect to "control," commonly have PRO and infinitive markers, but Thai does not…

Gonthier, Corentin; Ambrosi, Solène; Blaye, Agnès – Journal of Experimental Psychology: Learning, Memory, and Cognition, 2021
Cognitive control can be triggered by explicit or implicit events; it has been proposed that these two possibilities tap into dissociable mechanisms. In this study, we investigate this idea by testing whether young children, who struggle with explicitly triggered control, can demonstrate proportion congruency effects--which are based on implicit…

Losada-Gutierrez, Cristina; Espinosa, Felipe; Santos-Perez, Carlos; Marron-Romera, Marta; Rodriguez-Ascariz, Jose Manuel – IEEE Transactions on Education, 2020
Hands-on experimentation has widely demonstrated its efficacy in engineering training, especially in control formation, since experimentation using computer-aided control system design (CACSD) tools is essential for future engineers. In this context, this article describes a case study for Control Engineering formation, based on a new lab practice…

Kubota, Maki; Chevalier, Nicolas; Sorace, Antonella – Developmental Science, 2020
This longitudinal study investigates whether the development in executive control and bilingual experience predicts change in language control in bilingual children. Children were tested twice over the course of 1 year, using the language-switching paradigm and the Simon task. The participants were Japanese-English bilingual "returnee"…

Gerard, Juliana – Language Acquisition: A Journal of Developmental Linguistics, 2022
Previous research on 4-6-year-olds' interpretations of adjunct control has observed non-adult-like behavior for sentences like "John called Mary before running to the store." Several studies have aimed to identify a grammatical source of children's errors. This study tests the predictions of grammatical and extragrammatical accounts by…

Yao, Jianchu – Advances in Engineering Education, 2020
This paper presents a design project and its assessment in an undergraduate control theory course. In the project, students mathematically modeled the thermal dynamics of a glass incubator and its heat source. Based on these models, they designed a lag compensator to keep the incubator temperature in a safe range when the external temperature…

Alzahabi, Reem; Hussey, Erika; Ward, Nathan – Cognitive Research: Principles and Implications, 2022
Cognitive control operates via two distinct mechanisms, proactive and reactive control. These control states are engaged differentially, depending on a number of within-subject factors, but also between-group variables. While research has begun to explore if shifts in control can be experimentally modulated, little is known about whether context…

Duncan, Charles A.; Kern, Ben – Journal of Physical Education, Recreation & Dance, 2020
Competition is a ubiquitous component of American culture and in many US physical education programs. In this article, five myths associated with competition are dispelled: (1) Everyone likes competition, (2) Competition is motivational, (3) Competition is fun, (4) Competition promotes physical activity, and (5) Competition prepares children for…

Bolduc, Jonathan; Gosselin, Nathalie; Chevrette, Tommy; Peretz, Isabelle – Early Child Development and Care, 2021
This study explores how music training impacts the development of inhibition control, phonological processing, and gross and fine motor skills in preschoolers. In a randomized controlled trial, 160 kindergarteners in a music programme, a motor programme, or a control group were examined. Children in the two experimental conditions took part in 19…
