Executive Function

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


It is not the purpose of this chapter to instruct the reader on the topic of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in general behavioral terms, to review evidence for the neurobiological nature thereof, or to analyze ADHD in terms of models of cognitive neuropsychology; these matters may be reviewed by the reader in this volume, as well as some recent publications (1–3). Resolutely atheoretical, this chapter aims to set forth many questions (but few answers) on the limited (yet multifaceted) issues, important both for research studies and clinical evaluations, connecting the domain of executive function (EF) and/or certain deficits thereof, executive dysfunction (EDF), with the diagnosis of any subtype of ADHD.
