The Role of the Medial Frontal Cortex in Cognitive Control
Adaptive goal-directed behavior involves monitoring of ongoing actions and performance outcomes, and subsequent adjustments of behavior and learning. We evaluate new findings in cognitiveExpand

What motivates the adolescent? Brain regions mediating reward sensitivity across adolescence.
The relation between brain development across adolescence and adolescent risky behavior has attracted increasing interest in recent years. It has been proposed that adolescents are hypersensitive toExpand

Dissociation of response conflict, attentional selection, and expectancy with functional magnetic resonance imaging.
Two different attentional networks have been associated with visuospatial attention and conflict resolution. In most situations either one of the two networks is active or both are increased inExpand

Adolescent risky decision-making: Neurocognitive development of reward and control regions
We examined neural responses during choice selection and outcome processing in 4 age groups (pre-pubertal children, early adolescents, older adolescents and young adults). Expand

Neural evidence for dissociable components of task-switching.
The ability to retrieve and flexibly switch between task rules is seen as an important component of cognitive control. It is often assumed that lateral prefrontal cortex (latPFC) is important forExpand

Longitudinal Changes in Adolescent Risk-Taking: A Comprehensive Study of Neural Responses to Rewards, Pubertal Development, and Risk-Taking Behavior
Prior studies have highlighted adolescence as a period of increased risk-taking, which is postulated to result from an overactive reward system in the brain. Longitudinal studies are pivotal forExpand

Neurocognitive development of the ability to manipulate information in working memory.
The ability to manipulate information in working memory is a key factor in cognitive development. Here, we used event-related functional MRI to test the hypothesis that developmental improvements inExpand

Neurocognitive development of relational reasoning.
Relational reasoning is an essential component of fluid intelligence, and is known to have a protracted developmental trajectory. To date, little is known about the neural changes that underlieExpand

Developmental Changes in Real Life Decision Making: Performance on a Gambling Task Previously Shown to Depend on the Ventromedial Prefrontal Cortex
Patients with bilateral lesions of the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, when performing gambling tasks modeling real-life decision-making, opt for choices that yield high immediate gains in spite ofExpand
