The collected papers from the most prestigious symposia in the field of child development provide scholars, students, and practitioners with access to the work of key researchers in human development. This volume focuses on changes in our understanding of cogisnitive control processes—constructs important to the field since Wundt and Freud. Our understanding of these constructs has advanced dramatically in recent years—both empirically and conceptually. This collection brings generalists and specialists alike up-to-date on this central process of human development and the implications for this new knowledge on school success and other areas.

<p><strong>Philip David Zelazo</strong> is the Nancy M. and John E. Lindahl Professor in the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota. He studies the development and neural bases of executive function, or the conscious control of thought, action, and emotion. His work has focused on a number of influential ideas, including the notion that the executive function depends, in part, on the development of the ability to use increasingly complex, higher-order rules. <p><strong>Maria D. Sera</strong> is a full professor in the Institute of Child Development at the University of Minnesota.?Her research focuses on the relation between language and cognitive development.
