The infant's behaviour toward the caregiver becomes organized on a goal-directed basis to achieve the conditions that make it feel secure. Relationships formed with peers influence the acquisition of social skills, intellectual development and the formation of social identity.
Age, cognitive growth, and continued social experience advance the development and complexity of the internal working model. This system, called the "internal working model of social relationships", continues to develop with time and experience. Occasionally, theoretical or methodological papers, critical reviews of a content area, or theoretically relevant case studies will also be published.
Fearful-avoidant adults have mixed feelings about close relationships, both desiring and feeling uncomfortable with emotional closeness. The purposes of Aging, Neuropsychology, and Cognition are to a publish research on both the normal and dysfunctional aspects of cognitive development in adulthood and aging, and b promote the integration of theories, methods, and research findings between the fields of cognitive gerontology and neuropsychology.
The long-term evolution of these species has involved selection for social behaviors that make individual or group survival more likely. Where an infant is faced with insensitive or rejecting parenting, one strategy for maintaining the availability of their attachment figure is to try to exclude from consciousness or from expressed behaviour any emotional information that might result in rejection.
Early steps in attachment take place most easily if the infant has one caregiver, or the occasional care of a small number of other people. The International Journal of Behavioral Development is the official journal of the International Society for the Study of Behavioural Development which exists to promote the discovery, dissemination and application of knowledge about developmental processes at all stages of the life span - infancy, childhood, adolescence, adulthood and old age.
If the caregiver is inaccessible or unresponsive, attachment behaviour is more strongly exhibited. Published papers represent a variety of perspectives from the learning sciences and cover learning by people of all ages, in all areas of the curriculum, and in informal and formal learning contexts.
Attachment-related behaviours lose some characteristics typical of the infant-toddler period and take on age-related tendencies. Bowlby saw the environment of early adaptation as similar to current hunter-gatherer societies. This form of development is known as "Portional Development" and explains why motor functions develop relatively quickly during typical childhood development, while logic, which is controlled by the middle and front portions of the frontal lobe, usually will not develop until late childhood and early adolescence.
As children move into the school years at about six years old, most develop a goal-corrected partnership with parents, in which each partner is willing to compromise in order to maintain a gratifying relationship.
The journal is devoted exclusively to publishing research on the physiological and behavioral aspects of adult development and aging. They include the following: The primary emphasis of the journal is to publish original empirical research.
Developmental Psychology publishes articles that advance knowledge and theory about development across the life span.

12 children (mean age 6 years [range 3–10], 11 boys) were referred to a paediatric gastroenterology unit with a history of normal development followed by loss of acquired skills, including language, together with diarrhoea and abdominal pain.
The Berlin Wall—symbol of a divided city within a divided nation within a divided continent—was grounded in decades-old historical divisions at the end of World War II.
Attachment theory is a psychological model attempting to describe the dynamics of long-term and short-term interpersonal relationships between humans. "Attachment theory is not formulated as a general theory of relationships; it addresses only a specific facet": how human beings respond within relationships when hurt, separated from loved ones, or perceiving a threat.
