To what extent uncertainty, and the mechanisms that may drive the experience of uncertainty, play a role in the development of mental health symptomatology is an important question for future developmental studies. For example, in any business-critical process, key suppliers should be identified and alternatives found.

The decrease in exploratory or noisy choices with age is therefore one potential mechanism by which adolescents might perform better when learning from volatile outcomes than when learning from only stochastic outcomes relative to adults. This situation changed when he was about a year old, and, as we have no families around, we had to take him to day care 4 days a week. One explanation is that these learning processes may overlap and depend on the same learning systems in the brain. I’ve struggled with framing my daughter’s death as a trauma- I feel this immense pressure (self imposed) that since I had so much notice- months- to prepare for my baby’s likely death, I should have handled and still be handling it all better. Additionally, it has been suggested that adolescents’ ability to adapt to volatile social environments may manifest in the increased variability of their moods (Gregorova et al.

The choice is then determined by the Softmax function, which assigns higher choice probability to the option with the higher EV proportional to the difference of the EVs for different options with varying sensitivity (Equation 2). For future studies, these sample characteristics are important to consistently report in the literature (Qu et al. Another recent framework that would be interesting to test using a developmental perspective disentangles decision noise from computation noise (Findling et al. I’m angry that I lost the blissful ignorance right away, never allowed to think “oh everything will be fine” with her pregnancy or my subsequent pregnancy- and watching others with their well deserved bliss brings up that anger. Tables 1 and 2 summarize all studies, including age ranges and paradigms, model parameters, and whether neuroimaging data were included.

I have heard over and over from other loss friends that the responses from others diminish over time- so I was expecting that.The results suggest that adolescents might have an advantage over younger and older age groups when learning in dynamic environments with volatile outcomes. Burros, who has survived some near disasters, including a studio fire, stresses the importance of planning ahead and expecting the unexpected, and notes that the time involved in doing so is arguably the most difficult aspect of the process. An upside to reward sensitivity: The hippocampus supports enhanced reinforcement learning in adolescence.

No one has said to me straight up “waiting for and then watching your daughter die is not a traumatic event. A recent spur for this is our much-documented recent encounter with the peculiar astronomical object that has come to be known as ‘Oumuamua’. The use of computational models in different age groups in combination with brain measures may provide insights in how learning develops on multiple levels of explanation (Lockwood et al.I did lots of bootcamp classes when I was pregnant with Mabel and continued after she died into my pregnancy with Felix.
