Event description
Luria Neuroscience Institute is pleased to announce the webinar "Executive Functions and the Frontal Lobes".

About this Event

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 the role of executive functions in creativity and their relationship to intelligence.

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 Credit will be awarded by CE credit sponsor R. Cassidy Seminars. There is no additional fee for the production of a CE certificate.

R. Cassidy Seminars are CE Sponsors for the American Psychological Association and recognized by the New York State Education Department as an approved provider of continuing education for psychologists, psychoanalysts, social workers, NY-LMHCs, NY-LMFTs and creative arts therapists.
