This chapter aims to understand the neurocognitive basis of the influence of socioeconomic status (SES) on adolescent development. It shows that both executive and language function vary with SES. Working memory and cognitive control have the strongest relationship to SES. The chapter concludes that there is no detectable relationship between SES and reward processing, another form of executive function that is predictive of real-world life outcomes.

Keywords:   socioeconomic status, executive function, language function, working memory, cognitive control
