August 4: Webinar "Executive Functions and the Frontal Lobes"
The webinar by Elkhonon Goldberg, PhD, ABPP will be streamed live on August 4 (Saturday), 1pm - 4pm Australian Eastern Time.
Executive functions represent the highest level of cognitive control and involve goal formation, planning, mental flexibility, impulse control, working memory. Executive functions are mediated by the prefrontal cortex and related structures. In this webinar we will examine their congnitive composition, neural mechanisms, changes throughout the lifespan, and gender differences. We will also examine how executive functions become impaired in a wide range of neurological, neuropsychiatric, neurodevelopmental, and neurogeriatric disorders.
Executive functions and frontal-lobe functions: are they the same?
Date: August 4 (Saturday), 1pm - 4pm Australian Eastern Time
