Abstract

The human brain undergoes considerable maturational changes during adolescence which have been predicted to influence self-regulatory control. In the current study, developmental trajectories associated with three domains of cognitive regulation: response inhibition, updating of working memory, and mental set-switching, were assessed in a sample of 149 adolescents aged between 11 and 17 years. Findings support the premise that levels of self-regulatory control increase over the course of adolescence but that different aspects of cognitive regulation are likely to mature along differing developmental trajectories.
