Chaos & Complex Systems Seminar
Are modern psychological and social behavior investigators missing a boat developmental neuroscience could help them catch?
Time: 12:05 pm - 1:00 pm
Place: 4274 Chamberlin (Refreshments will be served)
Speaker: Bernard Z. Friedlander, Department of Psychology, University of Hartford
Abstract: Large bodies of research with people of all ages tend to confirm that children who perform better on tests of delayed gratification (DG) tend to do well in life, while those with limited capacities for DG as children do less well in the progress of their lives. This paper presents the possibility that DG and related behavioral realities represent critical processes in individual psychological development. These processes are open to new vectors of understanding based on new thinking about the autonomic nervous system and developmental neuroscience. New ways of thinking about old problems offer tantalizing possibilities for new research.
