Supraordinary Executive Functions

Supraordinary Executive Functions

 

We have studied executive functions in football players and shown that better players have better executive functions and that the level of executive functions correlate with future success measured as assists and goals (Vestberg et al Plos One 2012). This study is the first in which we try to understand executive functions in healthy (and high-functioning) participants. We have now continued to study what effect well-develped or "supraordinary"  executive functions have  on function and bahaviour. This may help us better understand underlying regulatory top-down processes  in the brain and why they fail in some psychiatic disorders like ADHD.
