What is Executive Functions?
Executive functions refer to the cognitive processes involved in inhibition, decision-making, problem-solving, learning, and retrieving the correct information we have learned previously to complete a task.
Executive functioning occurs in the frontal lobes of the brain, which have many connections to other vital areas, such as the limbic system for emotion regulation. Given that, any work on executive functioning may just improve an individuals ability to emotionally regulate.
