Congratulations to Ellen Jopling and her co-authors for publishing their paper titled, “Cognitive Disengagement and Biological Stress Responses in Early Adolescence” in Psychoneuroendocrinology!


Ellen and her collaborators investigated whether difficulty disengaging attention versus working memory from valenced stimuli was associated with biological responses to stress in early adolescence. Consistent with expectations, they found that attention and working memory disengagement biases were associated with stress responses of both the neuroendocrine and autonomic nervous systems, but bias valence and cognitive system influenced the directionality of results. These findings inform our understanding of cognitive mechanisms that influence biological stress reactivity.
