          Abstract

          The purpose of this article is to analyze the psycho-cultural processes involved in knitting “mochilas” (traditional bags), a common craft in the Arhuaco indigenous community located in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, Colombia. The article is structured in three parts, as follows: first, issues related to child development are discussed; then, the analysis method used to study the processes involved in the practice of knitting is presented and, finally, we reflect on the importance of recovering the sense and meaning of this everyday practice as a way to study child development.

            Autoetnografía: una forma narrativa de generación de conocimientos

            Este texto tiene un doble propósito, por un lado, contribuir a la difusión de una vertiente de la investigación cualitativa, y una forma de escritura y presentación de resultados, denominada autoetnografía. Para cubrir este objetivo se da cuenta de dónde deriva este enfoque, su desarrollo en la última década del siglo XX y la primera del nuevo milenio, y los principales elementos que lo caracterizan. Se toma como base la literatura especializada producida en el mundo anglosajón debido a que su ejercicio en los países de habla hispana es aún muy incipiente. Por otro lado, también es primordial el propósito de ofrecer un ejemplo de este subgénero narrativo. La temática abordada en el relato personal que se incluye al final del texto está acotada histórica y socialmente ya que se hace referencia a un momento muy específico, y poco tratado, que se centra en la vivencia de la llegada del primer aparato televisor, durante los años cincuenta, a hogares de sectores medios de la ciudad de México.

              Emotion regulation in the brain: conceptual issues and directions for developmental research.

              Emotion regulation cannot be temporally distinguished from emotion in the brain, but activation patterns in prefrontal cortex appear to mediate cognitive control during emotion episodes. Frontal event-related potentials (ERPs) can tap cognitive control hypothetically mediated by the anterior cingulate cortex, and developmentalists have used these to differentiate age, individual, and emotion-valence factors. Extending this approach, the present article outlines a research strategy for studying emotion regulation in children by combining emotion induction with a go/no-go task known to produce frontal ERPs. Preliminary results indicate that medial-frontal ERP amplitudes diminish with age but become more sensitive to anxiety, and internalizing children show higher amplitudes than noninternalizing children, especially when anxious. These results may reflect age and individual differences in the effortful regulation of negative emotion.
