Understanding the Neural Correlates of Persistence, Engagement, Attention, and Regulation 

What are the factors that contribute to our ability to stay engaged in learning even when things get challenging?  In this investigation we are exploring this question by examining how children sustain their attention and persist toward learning goals. In particular, we are interested in understanding the brain and behavioral correlates of children’s attentional focus and persistence on tasks they find challenging.
