Hi John

My 2 cents (as a member)

I dont always see “Effect of impaired reasoning” a subset of “Effect of impaired executive function”

Executive function relies on may things such as short term memory reasoning ect - But not always. They can be independent. So short term memory and other memory can have use outside executive function although executive function typically uses them (at least as much as fluid reasoning).

 . Also executive function also involves
 emotional control and self-monitoring
  shift ( also called task flexibility) 
 initiation and 
 planning/organization and 
I disagree that "Effect of impaired literacy-related functions” is  a subset of “Effect of reduced knowledge”.

I Sometimes " reduced knowledge" can be an effect of "impaired literacy-related functions" but again not necessarily and I would think it  would be unusual for it to be the other way round.



All the best

  Hi Lisa,
 Now that I have used the Issue Paper template for the first time, I have the following questions.
 ·     Isn’t “Effect of impaired reasoning” a subset of “Effect of impaired executive function”? 
 ·     Likewise, should we consider “Effect of impaired literacy-related functions” to be a subset of “Effect of reduced knowledge”?
 ·     If the answers to the above are “yes”, then should we eliminate the subsets, or at least move them under the related sets of challenges? 
 ·     What is meant by “Effect of impaired understanding of behaviors or consciousness”?
 ·     Is the use of an introduction summary required if, like my draft of the CAPTCHA Issue Paper, the text of the introduction is succinct?
