Behavioral inhibition: linking biology and behavior within a developmental framework.
The current chapter reviews areas of research on behavioral inhibition and provides an integrative account of the broad impact of behavioral inhibition research.
Continuity and discontinuity of behavioral inhibition and exuberance: psychophysiological and behavioral influences across the first four years of life.
Four-month temperament was modestly predictive of behavioral inhibition over the first 2 years of life and of behavioral reticence at age 4 and change in behavioral inhibition was related to experience of nonparental care.
Cognition assessment using the NIH Toolbox
The NIH-TB Cognition Battery is intended to serve as a brief, convenient set of measures to supplement other outcome measures in epidemiologic and longitudinal research and clinical trials and will provide a “common currency” among researchers for comparisons across a wide range of studies and populations.
Being alone, playing alone, and acting alone: distinguishing among reticence and passive and active solitude in young children.
3 forms of solitude were studied in young children--reticence (onlooker and unoccupied behavior), solitary-passive behavior (solitary-constructive and -exploratory play), and solitary-active behavior (dramatic play) and the underlying mechanisms associated with reticence and passive and active withdrawal were discussed.
Development of the EEG from 5 months to 4 years of age
Self-expressiveness within the family context: psychometric support for a new measure
The family appears to be an important setting for learning about emotions and how to express them within a social context. Because of the need for reliable and valid measures of emotional
NIH Toolbox for Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function
The contract for the NIH Toolbox for the Assessment of Neurological and Behavioral Function was initiated by the NIH Blueprint for Neuroscience Research to develop a set of state-of-the-art measurement tools to enhance collection of data in large cohort studies and to advance the biomedical research enterprise.
Stable early maternal report of behavioral inhibition predicts lifetime social anxiety disorder in adolescence.
Findings suggesting that stable maternal-reported early BI predicts lifetime SAD have important implications for the early identification and prevention of SAD.
Automatic correction of ocular artifacts in the EEG: a comparison of regression-based and component-based methods.
A modified regression approach using Bayesian adaptive regression splines to filter the electrooculogram (EOG) before computing correction factors supported the use of regression-based and PCA-based ocular artifact correction and suggested a need for further studies examining possible spectral distortion from ICA-based corrections.
