However, little is currently known about functional neural correlates of forms of corporal punishment that are more socially normative in some countries, such as spanking.

The dimensional model predicts that the magnitude of these neural changes varies as a function of the severity of the threat involved.

More recently, some have argued that spanking may influence brain development in a similar manner as more extreme forms of maltreatment (e.g., Gershoff, 2016 ).

Spanking and other forms of corporal punishment are threatening experiences that cause fear, pain, and threat of harm to the child (Gershoff, 2002 ).

Consequently, spanking may influence neurodevelopmental processes in similar ways as more severe forms of maltreatment.

Despite the high prevalence and widespread social approval of spanking, developmental theories have long posited that spanking is associated with deleterious child outcomes (see Gershoff, 2002 ).

Alternatively, this finding may suggest that differences in salience network responses to threat cues following corporal punishment are more constrained than following more severe forms of violence. »

US under Biden will no longer call migrants ‘illegal aliens’

Authored by

Memos issued by Customs and Border Protection, as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement, tells employees to use the words “non-citizen” or “migrant.”

The change reflects guidelines set by the Biden administration, which is reversing many of the anti-immigrant policies of former President Donald Trump.

“We enforce our nation’s laws while also maintaining the dignity of every individual with whom we interact,” Miller said. »
