This episode is a discussion with Dr. Adele Diamond about executive functions (EFs), with a focus on children and the developing brain. The conversation covers a wide range of topics, including models of EFs, three core EFs (inhibitory control, working memory, and cognitive flexibility), the differential development of EF components during childhood, the ability of early EFs to predict later life outcomes, relationships between EFs and fluid intelligence, assessment of EFs, task impurity, and interventions to improve EFs in children.
