Exec. Function and Clinical Neuropsych PPT

Chris Chatham, the author of the fantastic Developing Intelligence blog, has made available (in PPT or PDF format) a presentation he put together on clinical neuropsychology and executive function. Below is what Chris says about his presentation. His presentation can be downloaded for free from his site. Kudos to Chris.
  • This presention 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)

  • 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.
