Development of attention networks and their interactions in childhood.
TLDR
These findings inform current theoretical models of human attention and its development, characterizing for the first time, the age-related course of attention networks interactions that, present in adults, stem from further refinements over childhood.
Development in attention functions and social processing: Evidence from the Attention Network Test
TLDR
Findings of this study suggest that attentional networks are still developing from 6 to 10 years of age and underline the importance of face information in modulating the efficiency of executive control.
Training, maturation, and genetic influences on the development of executive attention.
TLDR
Overall, the data suggest that the executive attention network appears to develop under strong genetic control, but that it is subject to educational interventions during development.
Development of attention networks from childhood to young adulthood: A study of performance, intraindividual variability and cortical thickness
TLDR
The results indicated that executive control stabilized during late adolescence, while orienting and alerting continued to develop into young adulthood, and increased consistency of orienting performance was associated with thinner cortex in prefrontal regions and reduced age-related thinning in frontal regions.
A longitudinal analysis of the attention networks in 6- to 11-year-old children
TLDR
Age 6 to 7 years is a critical period in the development of attention, in particular executive attention, and the largest improvement over the evaluation period was between 6 and 7 years; however, subtle changes were found in attention beyond 8 years of age.
Development of attentional networks: An fMRI study with children and adults
Validation and Characterization of a New Attention
Research has shown that our attentional system is comprised of three different networks: alerting, orienting, and executive control. While much research has been completed on these attentional
Attentional networks effi ciency in preterm children
Recent studies have reported specific executive and attentional deficits in preterm children. However, the majority of this research has used multidetermined tasks to assess these abilities, and the

Testing the Efficiency and Independence of Attentional Networks
TLDR
A study with 40 normal adult subjects indicates that the ANT produces reliable single subject estimates of alerting, orienting, and executive function, and further suggests that the efficiencies of these three networks are uncorrelated.
Assessing the heritability of attentional networks
TLDR
It is suggested that genetic variation contributes to normal individual differences in higher order executive attention involving dopamine rich frontal areas including the anterior cingulate.
Developing mechanisms of temperamental effortful control.
TLDR
Children's performance on the eye-movement task was correlated with performance and reaction time on spatial tasks, and both were related to aspects of effortful control and negative affect as measured in children's parent-reported temperament.

Activating Tasks for the Study of Visual-Spatial Attention in ADHD Children: A Cognitive Anatomic Approach
The clinical label attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) suggests that this syndrome is a disorder of attention. However, the presumed attentional deficits have not been linked either to

The role of the anterior cingulate in automatic and controlled processes: a developmental neuroanatomical study.
TLDR
Performance was faster and more accurate during trials requiring predominantly controlled processes for those children with larger right anterior cingulate measures, consistent with adult neuroimaging findings of activation in the right anteriorcingulate during attention tasks and with lesion studies implicating greater right hemisphere involvement in attentional processes.
Computerized games to study the development of attention in childhood
TLDR
A battery of computerized tasks is designed in order to study the development of attention functions of alertness, orienting, and executive control during childhood to allow for comparable tasks across a wide variety of ages and to make possible comparisons of child performance with data gathered in adult cognitive studies.
