  1. A female advantage in the imitation of gestures by preschool children.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(2):137 (2007) PMID 17488213

    Adult research has suggested a sex difference in the neuroanatomical organization and efficiency of the limb praxis system. The present study used a videotape analysis of movement errors to investigate whether a sex difference in limb praxis can be identified in childhood. Preschool girls (n = 3...
  2. Infant holding preferences in maternity hospitals: testing the hypothesis of the lateralized perception of emotions.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 32(3):881 (2007) PMID 17956187

    Infant holding biases of 202 mothers were studied in four French maternity hospitals. The study collected laterality for holding in mother/child dyads as a means of testing the emotional hypothesis (Manning & Chamberlain, 1991). Maternal holding side preferences and handedness were collected thr...
  3. Aging affects motor skill learning when the task requires inhibitory control.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 32(1):597 (2007) PMID 17650996

    Few studies have examined the influence of aging on motor skill learning (MSL) tasks involving different skills and conditions. Two tasks, each including two different conditions (repeated and nonrepeated), were used: (a) the Mirror Tracing task, requiring the inhibition of an overlearned respon...
  4. Changes in brain functioning from infancy to early childhood: evidence from EEG power and coherence working memory tasks.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(1):21 (2007) PMID 17305436

    Using measures of EEG power and coherence with a longitudinal sample, the goal of this study was to examine developmental changes in brain electrical activity during higher order cognitive processing at infancy and early childhood. Infants were recruited at 8 months of age and performed an infan...
  5. Paradoxical enhancement of letter recognition in developmental dyslexia.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(1):61 (2007) PMID 17305438

    In a number of studies, children diagnosed with developmental dyslexia reached normal scores in standard visual processing tasks, and some researchers concluded that visual processing deficits are not involved in the syndrome. The tasks used, however, may be insensitive to anomalous visual infor...
  6. The impact of spina bifida on development across the first 3 years.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(1):1 (2007) PMID 17305435

    Early cognitive, motor, and language skills were evaluated in 165 children, 91 with Spina Bifida (SB) and 74 developing typically. Assessments were given at 5 time points (6, 12, 18, 24, and 36 months of age). Three latent growth curve models were conducted to evaluate the development of these e...
  7. Working memory performance in typically developing children and adolescents: behavioral evidence of protracted frontal lobe development.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(1):103 (2007) PMID 17305440

    Post-mortem histological and in vivo neuroimaging findings both reveal frontal lobe development that extends beyond the adolescent years. Few studies have examined whether this protracted neurodevelopment coincides with improvements in adolescent performance on putative frontal lobe tasks. An in...
  8. Working memory and new learning following pediatric traumatic brain injury.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 32(2):683 (2007) PMID 17931125

    Working memory (WM), the ability to monitor, process and maintain task relevant information on-line to respond to immediate environmental demands, is controlled by frontal systems (D'Esposito et al., 2006), which are particularly vulnerable to damage from a traumatic brain injury (TBI). This stu...
  9. Multiple factors contribute to neuropsychological outcome in children with posterior fossa tumors.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 32(2):729 (2007) PMID 17931127

    Cognitive deficits are frequently reported in children treated for posterior fossa (PF) tumors. A range of tumor, treatment, medical and treatment complications have been implicated in causing a variety of cognitive deficits. The aim of this study is to identify factors that influence intelligen...
  10. Using event-related potentials to study perinatal nutrition and brain development in infants of diabetic mothers.

    Developmental Neuropsychology 31(3):379 (2007) PMID 17559331 PMCID PMC2770716

    Proper prenatal and postnatal nutrition is essential for optimal brain development and function. The early use of event-related potentials enables neuroscientists to study the development of cognitive function from birth and to evaluate the role of specific nutrients in development. Perinatal ir...
