Presentation on Clinical Neuropsych and Executive Function

This presentation (PPT; PDF) summarizes the essential findings from three studies on the clinical neuropsychology of executive function. It begins with a preface on the basic differences between cognitive neuroscience and clinical neuropsychology, then delving into the difficulties facing any attempt to use theories of executive dysfunction in clinical neuropsych (this section is based on the Royall et al paper, covered here).

The second half of the presentation deals with factor analyses of executive dysfunction among patients with traumatic brain injury, and ways in which patients with traumatic brain injury can be assessed and possibly rehabilitated.
