Facilitation of Working Memory in Humans by a D2 Dopamine Receptor Agonist
Recent studies on the neurobiology of cognition have focused on the ability of the prefrontal cortex (PFC) to support processes of working memory, i.e, mnemonic processes by which informationExpand

Dopaminergic Modulation of Working Memory for Spatial but Not Object Cues in Normal Humans
It appears that functionally segregated visual pathways exist in the primate brain for the processing of visuospatial versus nonspatial information. Functional segregation has been demonstrated forExpand

Assessment of Neuropsychological Function Through Use of the Cambridge Neuropsychological Testing Automated Battery: Performance in 4- to 12-Year-Old Children
In this article, children's performance on subtasks from the Cambridge Neuropsychological Testing Automated Battery (CANTAB) is described. Two samples were recruited, one of which included childrenExpand

Neural networks involved in adolescent reward processing: An activation likelihood estimation meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging studies
This study uses an activation likelihood estimation (ALE) approach for quantitative meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging studies to: (1) confirm the network of brain regions involved in adolescents' reward processing, (2) identify regions that are likely to be activated during specific stages (anticipation, outcome) and valence (positive, negative) of reward processing.

The development of nonverbal working memory and executive control processes in adolescents.
The prefrontal cortex modulates executive control processes and structurally matures throughout adolescence. Consistent with these events, prefrontal functions that demand high levels of executiveExpand

Developmental changes in dopamine neurotransmission in adolescence: Behavioral implications and issues in assessment
Adolescence is characterized by increased risk-taking, novelty-seeking, and locomotor activity, all of which suggest a heightened appetitive drive. The neurotransmitter dopamine is typicallyExpand

Dopamine and the structure of personality: relation of agonist-induced dopamine activity to positive emotionality.
Modern trait theories of personality include a dimension reflecting positive emotionality (PE) based on sensitivity to signals of incentive-reward. In animals, responsivity within an emotional systemExpand

Neurobehavioral evidence for changes in dopamine system activity during adolescence
Human adolescence has been characterized by increases in risk-taking, emotional lability, and deficient patterns of behavioral regulation. These behaviors have often been attributed to changes inExpand
