Zelazo leads discussion on executive function at Achievement Gap Committee Brown Bag

Phil Zelazo, Nancy M. and John E. Lindahl Professor at the Institute of Child Development, led the discussion Executive Function and the Developing Brain at the Minnesota Achievement Gap Committee's Brown Bag on June 27. The general discussion of the achievement gap, has, up until recently, not included any discussion of executive function. Zelazo's research has shown that development of executive function is tied to later school success and he has been the lead developer of the executive function measures for the NIH Toolbox.
