WHAT IS IT?
Executive function allows us to experience:
Working memory (absorbing information and applying it to accomplish tasks)
Cognitive flexibility (mental multitasking, and switching one’s thinking between ideas)
inhibitory control (the ability to not do something just because you thought about it).
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
These skills are crucial for learning, problem-solving, and processing information!
