TITLE: MEASURING AND PROMOTING EXECUTIVE FUNCTION IN YOUNG CHILDREN
ABSTRACT: Dr. Carlson will be leading this brown bag guest lecture discussing her research on measuring and promoting executive function in young children. Her research focuses on the development of executive function (self-control of thought and action) in early childhood using multiple methods, including behavioral, brain, and cross-cultural studies (in Japan, Singapore, Korea, China, West Africa, and subcultures of the U.S.). Other research interests include affective and economic decision-making, theory of mind, and pretend play in children from diverse populations. Dr. Carlson is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association (Div. 7) and the Association for Psychological Science, and is Vice President of the Jean Piaget Society.
