CV – Laura Visu-Petra

My work investigates the typical and atypical development of executive functions, relevant for developing training programs and for improving academic performance. Current research projects target executive functioning and emotion-cognition interactions in high-anxious children (preschoolers and early school age). Another current research interest is the emergence and development of deceptive behavior in relation to the child’s socio-cognitive (theory of mind, executive functions) and problematic behaviour (internalizing and externalizing symptoms).

Research interests

•  Individual differences and vulnerability to developmental psychopathology

•  Typical and atypical executive functioning development

•  Cognitive functioning in high-trait anxiety

•  Executive functions and deception skills during early development

  Developmental cognitive neuropsychology
