The structure of executive function in 3-year-olds.
Although the structure of executive function (EF) during adulthood is characterized by both unity and diversity, recent evidence suggests that preschool EF may be best described by a single factor.Expand

The Contribution of Executive Functions to Emergent Mathematic Skills in Preschool Children
Mathematical ability is related to both activation of the prefrontal cortex in neuroimaging studies of adults and to executive functions in school-age children. The purpose of this study was toExpand
