Executive Function Theory and the Tests for ADHD Burnett Lecture (2012) - Dr. Russell A Barkley

Dr. Russell A Barkley was the yearly guest lecturer for the Burnett Series in 2012.   This was the 11th annual Timothy B. and Jane A. Burnett Seminar for Academic Achievement and it occurred on November 1, 2012.

The Burnett Seminar occur at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill and this place holds a special sentiment to Dr Barkley for it was here he first got his Bachelor of Arts in Psychology the 1970s before pursing his graduate degree and Ph.D. elsewhere

Burnett Lecture Website about the presentation

Slides for this Presentation.  These are the slides that Dr. Barkley gave the audience for the presentation, these are not the same slides he presents off of for he has a more to date version.

Note the interesting thing about this lecture is Dr. Barkley talks about why there are no good psychological tests for ADHD, and how you can not test executive function.  He also goes into detail what Executive Function is.
