    The executive functions involve various neurocognitive skills such as cognitive flexibility, working memory, inhibition control, reasoning, and planning (Carlson et al, 2003). It is a hierarchical model which governs the control and coordination of information processing. The executive functions emerge from infancy and develop swiftly during the preschool years. Dynamic brain changes within the prefrontal cortex (PFC) are consequently closely associated with the development. Throughout the essay…
