The Elusive Nature of Executive Functions: A Review of our Current Understanding
The neural substrates of the executive system are examined as well as the evolution of executive functioning, from development to decline, and the ability to inhibit overlearned behavior and verbal fluency is examined.

The prevalence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms in the general preschool and school population was higher than usually reported, and demographic variables are significant correlates of the AD/HD diagnosis.
Age-related cognitive decline during normal aging: the complex effect of education.
Illiteracy: the neuropsychology of cognition without reading.
The existence of partially specific neuronal networks as a probable consequence of the literacy level supports the hypothesis that education impacts not only the individual's day-to-day strategies, but also the brain networks.
Correlation between intelligence test scores and executive function measures.
The assumption that traditional intelligence tests are not appropriately evaluating executive functions is supported by the results of this study.
