Description:
Executive functions are the most fragile of all cognitive functions. They are affected in a wide range of neurological, psychiatric, neurodevelopmental, and neurogeriatric disorders. In this webinar we will examine how executive functions are affected in various dementias (including Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, and Frontotemporal dementia); traumatic brain injury, cerebrovascular disease, neuropsychiatric disorders (including schizophrenia and affective disorders), infectious encephalopathies, seizure disorders, and other clinical conditions.

Topics covered:

  1. Executive dysfunction in dementias (Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy body dementia, Fronto-temporal dementia).
  2. Executive dysfunction in traumatic brain injury (reticulo-frontal disconnection syndrome).
  3. Executive dysfunction in cerebrovascular disorders (CVA, aneurisms).
  4. Executive dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders (ADHD, Tourette’s Syndrome).
  5. Executive dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders (schizophrenia, affective disorders).
  6. Executive dysfunction in movement disorders (Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease).
  7. Executive dysfunction in infectious encephalopathies.
  8. Executive dysfunction and seizure disorders.
  9. Executive dysfunction and laterality.

Target Audience:
Psychologists, Neuropsychologists, Psychiatrists, Neurologists, Cognitive Neuroscientists, Social Workers, and other clinicians and researchers.

Learning Objectives

This course is designed to help you:

  1. Describe executive dysfunction in neurodevelopmental disorders. Executive dysfunction and ADHD – same or different? Where do they overlap and where do they diverge?
  2. Describe executive dysfunction in dementias: Alzheimer’s, Lewy body, Fronto-temporal and others.
  3. Describe executive dysfunction in Traumatic Brain Injury: “mild” TBI is not so mild.
  4. Describe executive dysfunction in neuropsychiatric disorders: schizophrenia, affective disorders, Tourette’s syndrome and OCD.
