Short-Term Memory, Working Memory, and Executive Functioning in Preschoolers: Longitudinal Predictors of Mathematical Achievement at Age 7 Years
This study examined whether measures of short-term memory, working memory, and executive functioning in preschool children predict later proficiency in academic achievement at 7 years of age (thirdExpand

The structure of executive function in 3-year-olds.
Although the structure of executive function (EF) during adulthood is characterized by both unity and diversity, recent evidence suggests that preschool EF may be best described by a single factor.Expand

Using confirmatory factor analysis to understand executive control in preschool children: I. Latent structure.
Although many tasks have been developed recently to study executive control in the preschool years, the constructs that underlie performance on these tasks are poorly understood. In particular, it isExpand

Executive function deficits in preschool children with ADHD and DBD.
BACKGROUND  Impairments in executive functions (EF) are consistently associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and to a lesser extent, with disruptive behavior disorder (DBD),Expand

Separating the fish from the sharks: a longitudinal study of preschool response inhibition.
The development of response inhibition was investigated using a computerized go/no-go task, in a lagged sequential design where 376 preschool children were assessed repeatedly between 3.0 and 5.25Expand

Developments in Long-Term Explicit Memory Late in the First Year of Life
Coincident with developments in the temporal-cortical explicit memory network, long-term recall abilities are newly emergent late in the first year of human life. We recorded event-related potentialsExpand

Longitudinal associations between executive control and developing mathematical competence in preschool boys and girls.
Executive control (EC) is related to mathematics performance in middle childhood. However, little is known regarding how EC and informal numeracy differentially support mathematics skill acquisitionExpand

Contribution of reactive and proactive control to children's working memory performance: Insight from item recall durations in response sequence planning.
The present study addressed whether developmental improvement in working memory span task performance relies upon a growing ability to proactively plan response sequences during childhood. TwoExpand
