Abstract / short description:
The aim of the planned five-day trip to New York, USA, is to establish an intensive research cooperation with Prof. Clancy Blair (Neuroscience & Education Lab, Steinhardt School, New York University, USA) targeting the research projects that investigate the development of self-regulation and executive functions as well as the effectiveness of self-regulation interventions carried out in the School Psychology Unit at the University of Tübingen. Specifically, we aim at initiating a close cooperation with C. Blair in the context of the DFG-funded project ‘Adaptive Dynamics of Cognitive and Behavioral Variability in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Long-Term Effects, Neural Bases, and Susceptibility to Intervention’ (GA 1277/9-1; Investigators: C. Gawrilow, C. Fiebach). C. Blair is a leading expert in the field of (computerized) assessment of self-regulation and executive functions across child development. Furthermore, C. Blair possesses unique expertise regarding the implementation of self-regulation interventions in large samples of children at risk for school failure. With regard to the project GA 1277/9-1 we particularly aim at discussing details concerning the implementation of the planned self-regulation intervention. Building on C. Blairs profound knowledge concerning the development of self-regulation and executive functions in early childhood, we will plan a joint longitudinal research project to investigate dynamics of and interventions on self-regulation and executive functions in children three to eight years of age who are at risk for school failure. In addition we aim at establishing a fruitful long-term cooperation and exchange with C. Blair for the LEAD Graduate School in Tübingen.
