A Neuropsychological Perspective on Attention Problems in Neurofibromatosis Type 1
Templer, Alexandra K.; Titus, Jeffrey B.; Gutmann, David H.
Journal of Attention Disorders, v17 n6 p489-496 Aug 2013
Cognitive problems are common in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 and they can often complicate treatment. The current literature review examines cognitive functioning in neurofibromatosis type 1, with a specific focus on executive functioning. This includes exploration of how deficits in executive functioning are expressed in children with neurofibromatosis type 1 and how these deficits contrast with ADHD. The value of investigating subcomponents of executive functioning is discussed, as are implications for effective treatment and future research. (Contains 3 tables.)
