Neuropsychological functioning covers a wide variety of cognitive domains subserved by different parts of the brain. In order to establish the relationship between brain and behaviour a neuropsychologist should have a thorough knowledge of these cognitive functions and the brain Ares responsible for these functions. The following section briefly describes the cognitive domains
Executive functions are the capacities that enable a person to control their behaviour and engage successfully in independent, purposive, goal-directed activities. (Lezak, 1995). Lezak describes four components of executive functions, each of which relies on its own set of behaviours:
These are the capacities by which an individual gains experience and retain it. Learning is the means of acquisition of new information about the environment and memory refers to the processes that are used to acquire, store, retain and later retrieve information. There are three major processes involved in memory: encoding, storage and retrieval. Both are interdependent processes. Memory can be broadly divided into explicit memory and implicit memory.
Attention can be defined as “the concentration of mental effort on sensory or mental events. Attentional processes facilitate, enhance, or inhibit other cognitive processes. Attentional problems may manifest as either distractibility or difficulty remaining focused on a task. Individuals with attentional dysfunction are usually unable to allocate cognitive resources effectively to the task at hand and fails to perform at optimal levels even though primary cognitive resources, such as sensory registration, perception, memory, and associative functions, are intact.
