Opportunities and limits of cognitive control plasticity in childhood

Niko Steinbeis

Childhood cognitive control is a critical predictor for a wide range of later-life outcomes (i.e. academic achievement, mental health, socio-economic status). This has placed it at the centre of attempts to train mental functions with the aim to improve said outcomes. I will present correlational and experimental evidence demonstrating a central role for cognitive control for a range of social, affective and cognitive functions in children. I will also present findings from a large randomized control trial of cognitive control training and its effects on a wide array of brain measures and processing domains. I will contextualise my research within the broader theoretical context on plasticity and interventions.
