For better or for worse: neural systems supporting the cognitive down- and up-regulation of negative emotion
The development of emotion regulation: an fMRI study of cognitive reappraisal in children, adolescents and young adults.
Compared older children, adolescents and young adults on a task that distinguishes negative emotional reactivity from reappraisal ability, a quadratic pattern of activation with age is observed in regions associated with social cognitive processes like mental state attribution (medial prefrontal cortex, posterior cingulate cortex, anterior temporal cortex).

All in the mind's eye? Anger rumination and reappraisal.
Research on rumination has demonstrated that compared with distraction, rumination intensifies and prolongs negative emotion. However, rumination and distraction differ both in what one thinks about…

Whether patterns of brain activation during reappraisal vary in relation to individual differences in trait rumination is examined to clarify relations between rumination and emotion regulation processes and may have important implications for mood and anxiety disorders.

Frequency and intensity of symptoms may both contribute to the phenomenology of pediatric PTSD and children with subthreshold criteria for PTSD demonstrate substantial functional impairment and distress.

This study shows that both bereaved and nonbereaved individuals who exhibited repressive coping behavior had fewer symptoms of psychopathology, experienced fewer health problems and somatic complaints, and were rated as better adjusted by close friends than those who did not exhibit repressive coping.
