What They Are, How They Work, and Why They Evolved

Russell A. Barkley

This groundbreaking book offers a comprehensive theory of executive functioning (EF), with important clinical implications. Synthesizing cutting-edge neuropsychological and evolutionary research, Russell Barkley presents a model of EF rooted in meaningful activities of daily life.

This 242-page, hard-cover book describes how abilities such as emotion regulation; self-motivation; planning, and working memory enable people to pursue both the personal and collective goals critical to survival.

Key stages of EF development are identified, and the far-reaching individual and social costs of EF deficits are detailed.  Barkley explains specific ways his model may support much-needed advances in assessment and treatment.
