Biological Substrates of Emotional Reactivity and Regulation in Adolescence During an Emotional Go-Nogo Task
BACKGROUND Adolescence is a transition period from childhood to adulthood that is often characterized by emotional instability. This period is also a time of increased incidence of anxiety andExpand

Differential patterns of striatal activation in young children with and without ADHD
BACKGROUND Cognitive control, defined as the ability to suppress inappropriate thoughts and actions, is compromised in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This study examines the neuralExpand

A neural basis for the development of inhibitory control
The present study explores the neural basis of the development of inhibitory control by combining functional neuroimaging with a parametric manipulation of a go-nogo paradigm. We demonstrate how theExpand

Frontostriatal Maturation Predicts Cognitive Control Failure to Appetitive Cues in Adolescents
Adolescent risk-taking is a public health issue that increases the odds of poor lifetime outcomes. One factor thought to influence adolescents' propensity for risk-taking is an enhanced sensitivityExpand

Quantitative magnetic resonance imaging of human brain development: ages 4–18
Brain magnetic resonance images (MRI) of 104 healthy children and adolescents, age 4-18, showed significant effects of age and gender on brain morphometry. Males had larger cerebral (9%) andExpand

Contributions of amygdala and striatal activity in emotion regulation
BACKGROUND Emotional information can facilitate or interfere with cognitive processes. In this study, we examined the influence of emotional information in biasing performance and the biologicalExpand
