Intelligence and Executive Functions: A Comprehensive Assessment of Intellectually Gifted Children

CONCLUSIONS: Contrary to expectations, high intellectual level does not appear to be associated with superior EFs. Surprisingly, parents and teachers of IGC reported more complaints about their executive functioning in everyday life. We put forward different hypotheses to explain this contrast. Further research is needed to better understand this phenomenon, in which neuropsychology has a fundamental role to play.PMID:36852774 | DOI:10.1093/arclin/acad021
