About this Research Topic
This Research Topic brings together research that focuses on executive dysfunction and its recovery and compensation. Executive function concerns abilities like planning, inhibition, decision making, and is supported by a wide range of cognitive abilities. The call for this topic aims to gather the most recent research related to the causes, nature, and recovery of executive dysfunction, with an emphasis on the corroboration of results from neurophysiology and brain imaging, neuropsychological tests, and daily activity performance. Specific emphasis will be put on deficits that are originated from the auditory and cognitive neural systems. A wide variety of studies focusing on the neural mechanism and theory informing the development of novel clinical interventions are welcome.
1. Understanding the recent advances in the theories and neural mechanisms of executive dysfunction and its manifestations
2. Explaining how the advances in understanding causes, nature, and recovery of executive function can inform the design of clinical interventions for different clinical populations
3. Evaluating effects of pilot studies on developing techniques for conducting executive function training in people with auditory and cognitive deficits
The scope of studies will include behavioral, neuroimaging, and neurophysiological investigations of executive dysfunction. Research objectives will address the theory and neural mechanism underlying the design of innovative clinical interventions for augmenting executive function.
Keywords: Executive Dysfunction, Cognitive Deficits, Intervention, Neuroimaging, Neurological Disorders
