This talk will cover the neural development underlying social- and economic judgments and decisions in childhood. I will cover a few paradigms related to social and time preferences and show that developmental changes in associated decisions are linked to independent measures of behavioural control and underlying late-developing neural brain circuitry. Further, I will present a paradigm on the development of affective egocentricity, showing that the development of right supramarginal gyrus, a temporo-parietal cortical brain area uniquely suited to overcoming faulty empathic judgments in terms of its connectional fingerprint, leads to reduced emotional egocentricity through childhood and into adulthood. Finally, I will present a project outline on the role of the amygdala in being functionally and structurally affected as a result of early maltreatment and subsequent differences in social behaviour. References to potential genetic mediators in the context of impulse control and emotional reactivity and regulation will be made.
