|About the colloquium:|
Early environment has been associated with differences in performance on tasks of executive functioning, but relatively little is known about the nature of those differences. The research presented utilised an existing model of executive functioning to investigate qualitative and quantitative differences in task performance in a sample of young people from diverse backgrounds.
