Webinar “Executive Functions and Frontal Lobes in Health and Disease”

The Luria Neuroscience Institute is pleased to introduce the webinar “Executive Functions and Frontal Lobes in Health and Disease”. Executive functions represent the highest level of cognitive control and involve goal formation, planning, mental flexibility, impulse control, working memory. Executive functions are mediated by the prefrontal cortex and related structures. In this webinar we will examine their cognitive composition, neural mechanisms, changes throughout the lifespan, and gender differences. We will also examine how executive functions become impaired in a wide range of neurological, neuropsychiatric, neurodevelopmental, and neurogeriatric disorders.
The webinar features Elkhonon Goldberg, Ph.D., ABPP., a clinical neuropsychologist and cognitive neuroscientist, Clinical Professor in the Department of Neurology, NYU School of Medicine and Diplomate of The American Board of Professional Psychology in Clinical Neuropsychology. His critically acclaimed and bestselling books have been published in 21 languages.

The webinar takes 3 hours and 3 CE Credits will be awarded. The participant will be able to print out the certificate immediately after filling out a short quiz.
