Executive Functions : What They Are, How They Work, and Why They Evolved Hardback
This groundbreaking book offers a comprehensive theory of executive functioning (EF) with important clinical implications.
Synthesizing cutting-edge neuropsychological and evolutionary research, Russell A.
Barkley presents a model of EF that is rooted in meaningful activities of daily life.
He describes how abilities such as emotion regulation, self-motivation, planning, and working memory enable people to pursue both personal and collective goals that are critical to survival.
Key stages of EF development are identified and the far-reaching individual and social costs of EF deficits detailed.
Barkley explains specific ways that his model may support much-needed advances in assessment and treatment.
