Executive attention is involved in the regulation of thoughts, emotions and responses. This function experiences major development during preschool years and is associated to a neural network involving the anterior cingulate cortex and prefrontal structures. Recently, there have been some attempts to improve attention and other executive functions...

Emotional intelligence (EI) constitutes a unique form of intelligence and, from performance-based ability models, is conceptualized as the integration of several abilities: use, manage, understand, and regulate emotions. The relation between cognitive processes and EI has been less researched. Recent studies show that EI, when measured by performan...

Hay estudios que señalan la presencia de niveles más altos de IE en alumnado con AACC sobre todo en solución de problemas, la prueba de realidad, la asertividad, la tolerancia al estrés, el optimismo y autoactualización. Parece ser que cuanto mayor sea la gestión del estrés y la adaptabilidad de las persona con AACC, más atención se presta al proce...

The inadequate measures to respond to the educational needs of schoolchildren with high intellectual potential are even more unfair when they are not provided equally to exceptional minds found among pupils with physical or sensory functional diversities, which do not limit their cognitive, artistic or creative capacity. This situation is called tw...

Literature shows that presence of behavioral problem and parenting styles based on physical punishment, lack of consistency and ineffecti...
Article

There is a robust evidence on the influence of parenting styles on children and adolescents academic achievement. Based on Baumrind's model of parenting styles, the majority of studies conclude that the authoritative parenting style is the most efficient to enhance academic achievement, in contrast to authoritarian and permissive parenting styles t...
Article
Full-text available
Children spend a lot of time with their parents who are the first agents that educate them. The parenting style implemented in the family influences other contexts outside home such as the school. There is evidence that a positive parenting style has an influence on school success. However, there are other variables related to school success, for e...

Teachers, educator, managers, employers, and people, in general, pay attention to EI. For example, teachers would like to know how EI could affect student’s academic results, and managers are concerned about how EI influences their employees’ performance. The concept of EI has been widely used in recent years to the extent that people start to appl...

A quarter-century after Peter Salovey and John Mayer introduced the concept of emotional intelligence (EI; Salovey and Mayer, 1990), it remains an important and growing research area. EI is usually analyzed from the perspective of the ability model or mixed models. The ability model focuses on an individual's mental abilities to apply information p...

The relationship between intelligence quotient (IQ) and cognitive control processes has been extensively established. Several studies have shown that IQ correlates with cognitive control abilities, such as interference suppression, as measured with experimental tasks like the Stroop and Flanker tasks. By contrast, there is a debate about the role o...

Regulation of thoughts and behavior requires attention, particularly when there is conflict between alternative responses or when errors are to be prevented or corrected. Conflict monitoring and error processing are functions of the executive attention network, a neurocognitive system that greatly matures during childhood. In this study, we examine...

Las investigaciones en educación señalan la existencia de una relación entre los estilos educativos paternos y el rendimiento académico en los niños. Estilos educativos basados en la consistencia educativa, las muestras de cariño y la motivación se han relacionado con un mayor rendimiento escolar (Lamborn et al, 1993, Steinberg et al 1992). Por otr...

Twelve-year-old children (N = 37) performed a combined Flanker-Go/No-Go task while their brain activation was registered using electroencephalogram (EEG). Additionally, measures of children regulation, schooling skills, and academic achievement were obtai...

Research Findings: Part of the attention system of the brain is involved in the control of thoughts, emotions, and behavior. As attentional control develops, children are more able to control cognition and responses flexibly and to adjust their behavior in social interactions better. In this article, we discuss evidence from different levels of ana...

Internationality as a concept is being applied ambiguously, particularly in the world of academic journal publication. Although different criteria are used by scientometrists in order to measure internationality and to supplement its minimal literal meaning, the present study suggests that no single criterion alone is sufficient. This paper surveys...
