N1 - Funding Information: Catherine Hartley is an Associate Professor of Psychology and Neural Science at New York University. She received her B.S. in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University and her PhD in Psychology from New York University. She conducted her postdoctoral training at the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology at Weill Cornell Medicine. Her research focuses on characterizing the changes in cognitive representations and computations that inform learning and decision-making across development, and how dynamic changes in brain circuits give rise to these functions. A goal of her research is to understand the costs and benefits associated with how individuals learn and make decisions at different developmental stages, as well as how specific learning and decision-making biases contribute to psychological vulnerability or resilience. Her research is supported by the National Science Foundation, the National Institute of Mental Health, the Templeton World Charity Foundation, the Jacobs Foundation, and the NYU Vulnerable Brain Project. Funding Information: Willem E. Frankenhuis is an Associate Professor of Psychology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands. He works at the intersection between developmental psychology and evolutionary biology. His research centers on developmental plasticity, the ability to adjust development based on environmental conditions and physiological state. His theoretical work uses mathematical modeling to explore how natural selection shapes mechanisms of plasticity, across generations. His empirical work studies how, within generations, these mechanisms adaptively tailor individuals to local conditions based on experience. Dr. Frankenhuis’ empirical research focuses on hidden talents, abilities that are enhanced by adversity. His research is supported by the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (V1.Vidi.195.130), the James S. McDonnell Foundation (220020502), and the Jacobs Foundation (2017 1261 02).
