Abstract: States that the articles in this collection consider one very interesting puzzle of development: U-shaped developmental functions. At some point during development, an organism might exhibit what seems like a regression from its expected developmental trajectory and, according to continuity models of development, this is aberrant. In this special issue, apparent regressions in behavior across a wide range of developmental phenomena are discussed.
