The functional emergence of prefrontally-guided working memory systems in four- to eight-year-old children
The neural processes that underlie the functional emergence of human cognitive functions, particularly those associated with the prefrontal cortex (PFC), are of growing interest to developmentalExpand

Is Face Processing Species-Specific During the First Year of Life?
Between 6 and 10 months of age, the infant's ability to discriminate among native speech sounds improves, whereas the same ability to discriminate among foreign speech sounds decreases. Our studyExpand

The Development and Neural Bases of Face Recognition
Evidence from fields as diverse as cognitive, evolutionary, and developmental psychology, as well as cognitive neuroscience, has increasingly pointed to the ‘special’ nature of face recognition. AExpand

The Ontogeny of Human Memory: A Cognitive Neuroscience Perspective.
The relation between early memory development and corresponding changes in brain development is explored in this article. It is proposed that a form of preexplicit memory (dependent on theExpand

Recognition of the mother's face by six-month-old infants: a neurobehavioral study.
Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from 6-month-olds as each watched pictures of the mother's face and a stranger's face. The ERPs differed for the 2 faces, but the pattern of neuralExpand

Tuning the developing brain to social signals of emotions
Humans in different cultures develop a similar capacity to recognize the emotional signals of diverse facial expressions. This capacity is mediated by a brain network that involves emotion-relatedExpand

An ERP study of emotional face processing in the adult and infant brain.
To examine the ontogeny of emotional face processing, event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded from adults and 7-month-old infants while viewing pictures of fearful, happy, and neutral faces.Expand

How the timing and quality of early experiences influence the development of brain architecture.
Early life events can exert a powerful influence on both the pattern of brain architecture and behavioral development. In this study a conceptual framework is provided for considering how theExpand

Brain activity differentiates face and object processing in 6-month-old infants.
Event-related potentials were used to determine whether infants, like adults, show differences in spatial and temporal characteristics of brain activation during face and object recognition. ThreeExpand
