Executive Lab

Executive Functioning (EF) refers to those neurocognitive abilities that allow one to plan, select, and execute actions that are purposeful and adaptive, goal-directed and future-oriented, and socially informed (Suchy, 2015, p. 10).

The Executive Lab undertakes projects that focus on improving our theoretical and clinical understanding of the construct of EF, its assessment, and its interface with motor and affective processes.
