In a new paper published in the Journal of Experimental Psychology: General, Mate Gyurkovics, Tom Stafford, and Liat Levita examine how the ability to dynamically adjust the levels of cognitive control changes across adolescence. Using two tasks of response inhibition, they found no age-relate differences in this dynamic control adjustments, while general performance improved with age. These findings suggest that not all aspects of cognitive control mature at a similar pace. More information about the study can be found at the project’s OSF page
