Funções executivas e regulação cognitivo-emocional: conexões anatômicas e funcionais

July Silveira Gomes, Luciane Simonetti, Simone Maidel

Resumo


O estudo das funções executivas (FEs) tem sido alvo de pesquisas com foco na relação cérebro-comportamento, principalmente no que diz respeito ao desenvolvimento de habilidades sociais e o controle emocional em crianças, adolescentes e adultos com lesão cerebral no lobo frontal. Uma vez que essas funções são fundamentais para a adaptação do indivíduo em sociedade, é possível perceber sua importância na evolução filogenética do homem como um mecanismo de regulação e controle do comportamento. Por essa razão, este artigo tem como objetivo fornecer um panorama geral de estudos e descobertas acerca das FEs, focando nos aspectos neuroanatômicos e seus correspondentes comportamentais, especialmente nos processos cognitivos e na regulação emocional.
