Tag: Executive dysfunction

Although we prefer the term ‘executive challenges’, executive dysfunction is the formal term for the set of challenges some people experience with executive functions—a group of cognitive processes that regulate, control, and manage other cognitive processes.

While executive challenges occur to a minor degree in everyone, some people experience a more pronounced pattern of challenges with executive functions such as goal formation, planning, goal-directed action, self-monitoring, attention, response inhibition, and coordination of complex cognition and motor control for effective performance.
