Neuropsychological functioning covers a wide variety of cognitive domains subserved by different parts of the brain. In order to establish the relationship between brain and behaviour a neuropsychologist should have a thorough knowledge of these cognitive functions and the brain Ares responsible for these functions. The following section briefly describes the cognitive domains
Executive function in neuropsychology refers to a set of cognitive processes that manage, control, and regulate other cognitive abilities, including attention, working memory, problem-solving, decision-making, and inhibitory control. These processes are primarily associated with the frontal lobes of the brain and are critical for goal-directed behavior and adaptive responses to complex situations.
Learning is the process of acquiring new or modifying existing knowledge and behaviors, involving changes in neural pathways. Memory is the memory to encode, store, and retrieve information, with various brain regions like the hippocampus and cortex playing crucial roles. Both are central to neuropsychological studies, helping to understand and treat cognitive impairments.
In neuropsychology, attention is defined as the cognitive process that allows an individual to selectively concentrate on a discrete aspect of information while ignoring other perceivable information, and it involves multiple systems including sustained focus, selective concentration, and shifting between tasks. It is crucial for various mental functions and is controlled by several brain networks, predominantly within the frontal and parietal lobes.
