- Recently, there is an increasing scientific interest in executive processes. These processes are theoretically important but vaguely defined. This project intends to contribute to the clarification of this concept by means of a combination of behavioral, neurophysiological and neuroanatomic measures. To that end, cognitive tasks involving executive processes are studied under ERP and PET scans.
