Theorists have proposed models of executive functioning, and functional neuroimaging and factor analytic studies have attempted to examine the components of executive functioning. These studies have arrived at different conclusions and many empirical studies are wrought with methodological confounds. The purpose of this exploratory study was to investigate the subcomponents of executive abilities while addressing some of the limitations common in previous studies. Neuropsychological test data… 
Systematic behavioural observation of executive performance after brain injury
TLDR
The measure was associated with standard neuropsychological measures, and the healthy control group performed better than the TBI group, suggesting the measure appears to be an ecologically valid measure of executive functioning.
Memory and executive functions correlates of self-awareness in traumatic brain injury
TLDR
Investigation of executive functions components and episodic and working memory variables, as well as clinical and demographic factors, to awareness of cognitive ability in traumatic brain injury indicated that semantic verbal fluency and age are the best predictors of awareness.
Executive Functions Deficits After Severe Traumatic Brain Injury: The GREFEX Study
TLDR
Behavioral changes were more frequent and severe than cognitive deficits, at least as assessed with traditional testing, and a shortened battery may provide a rapid screening method with reasonable sensitivity to detect deficits of executive functions in patients with severe traumatic brain injury.
The Role of Executive Functioning and Coping in the Traumatic Brain Injury Community
The focus of traumatic brain injury (TBI) rehabilitation is typically to improve overall cognitive and physical functioning and to increase autonomy and satisfaction with life. The current study
Executive functions profiles in traumatic brain injury adults: Implications for rehabilitation studies
TLDR
It is suggested that TBI rehabilitation studies of EF must select participants by their EF profile rather than for clinical or demographical variables.
Assessing Frontal Behavioral Syndromes and Cognitive Functions in Traumatic Brain Injury
TLDR
Although individuals with TBI demonstrated impairments in neuropsychological measures, including measures of executive functioning, few significant correlations were found between the patients’ FrSBe ratings and measures of cognitive functioning, which suggests that information from the FrS be may differ from information gathered during a cognitive evaluation and may enhance the understanding of the behavioral sequelae following TBI that may not be captured by neuroPsychological assessment alone.

The relationships between schizophrenia symptom dimensions and executive functioning components
Evaluation of executive functioning in people with intellectual disabilities.
TLDR
The lower-than-expected scores observed on the BADS-C may indicate that people known to learning disability services may be more impaired than people of comparable IQ not known to services, and the CEFA is suitable for use with people with mild to moderate learning disabilities.
Self-Awareness Moderates the Association Between Executive Dysfunction and Functional Independence After Acquired Brain Injury.
TLDR
SA seems to play a moderator effect between executive function, but not declarative memory, and functional independence, which might benefit participants with executive deficits and low levels of SA from receiving specific SA interventions in the first instance.

Analysis of the elements of attention: A neuropsychological approach
TLDR
This work presents a heuristic for clinical research in which the measurement of attention is essential, and substitutes for the diffuse and global concept of “attention” a group of four processes and links them to a putative system of cerebral structures.

Long-Term Sequelae of Prefrontal Cortex Damage Acquired in Early Childhood
TLDR
The long-term behavioral and cognitive sequelae of damage to prefrontal cortex in two young adult patients who had sustained their brain damage prior to 16 months of age are described and can help inform neuropsychological evaluation of patients with possible prefrontal dysfunction in the setting of developmental disabilities or early brain trauma.

The Unity and Diversity of Executive Functions and Their Contributions to Complex “Frontal Lobe” Tasks: A Latent Variable Analysis
TLDR
The results suggest that it is important to recognize both the unity and diversity ofExecutive functions and that latent variable analysis is a useful approach to studying the organization and roles of executive functions.
