Chapter
In this chapter we discuss the importance of promoting cognitive skills during development. Mental skills are key to learning and socialization and predict success in a wide range of life outcomes. In the past years, a great bulk of research has examined the extent to which cognitive skills can be enhanced through training interventions during deve...
Chapter
Mindfulness meditation is thought to lead to positive changes in cognitive and affective functioning. However, the mechanisms underlying these changes are not well understood. One reason for this is that so far only very few studies considered the effects of specific meditation practices. We thus investigated the effects of engaging in one specific...

Full-text available
Interventions including social scaffolding and metacognitive strategies have been used in educational settings to promote cognition. In addition, increasing evidence shows that computerized process‐based training enhances cognitive skills. However, no prior studies have examined the effect of combining these two training strategies. The goal of thi...
Article
Full-text available
Development of self-regulation, the capacity to voluntarily modulate thoughts, emotions and actions is strongly related to the maturation of the dopamine-mediated executive attention network (EAN). The attention control processes associated with the EAN greatly overlap with efficiency of the executive functions and are correlated with measures of e...

Article
Full-text available
Aspects of activation, selection and control have been related to attention from early to more recent theoretical models. In this review paper, we present information about different levels of analysis of all three aspects involved in this central function of cognition. Studies in the field of Cognitive Psychology have provided information about th...

In the present study, we investigated developmental trajectories of alerting, orienting, and executive attention networks and their interactions over childhood. Two cross-sectional experiments were conducted with different samples of 6- to 12-year-old children using modified versions of the attention network task (ANT). In Experiment 1 (N = 106), a...

Les emocions son una part important de l'experiencia humana i com els individus les regulen denota el nivell de felicitat personal. L'estudi d'aquests processos regulatius ha estat dut a terme per diferents tradicions, que han utilitzat diferents eines per comprendre'ls i explicar-los. En aquest article ens acostem als processos de regulacio emocio...

In this article we approach the emotional regulation processes from two differen...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Posner´s neurocognitive model consider attention as related to three different brain networks. Alerting network is in charge of the changes in the attentional states, Orientation network is in charge of orienting and selective attention, and the Executive Attention Network is in charge of the control and regulation of cognitive processes. Within th...

Project
Neuromindset is a spin-off of the University of Granada, through which we are transfering the knowledge, technological tools and strategies that are the result of the research on development and training of attention, executive functions and self regulation of the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Lab. We work on creating online courses and curriculum for education and health-care profesionales that are interested in attention and executive function training for children and adolescent. Currently our material is only in Spanish, but our gal is to translate it soon.
