Executive functioning refers to the cognitive processes responsible for planning, decision making, regulating behavior, and inhibiting undesirable behaviors. Executive functions predominantly occur in the brain’s frontal lobe, which connects to many other key brain areas such as the amygdala. Executive functioning is needed for everyday tasks, such as driving, making plans with friends, and performing well in the workplace or in school.
