The Neurobiology of Executive Function Differences

with Dr. Andrew Gordon

08/18/2021

Dr. Andrew Gordon is a cognitive neuroscientist
specializing in memory, decision making, cognitive control, and misinformation
research. This episode is a deep dive into a study conducted by Dr. Gordon and
a team of researchers on how executive function differences really show up
neurologically for autistic people. And what they found in the study wasn’t
that autistic people had executive function deficits, but that they used their
executive control networks differently. In this episode, Dr. Gordon explores
this research and its implications. This is part one of a two-part series on
executive function. In the next episode, we’ll go even deeper into the
practical ways we can support autistic people in their daily lives.
