ARANGO TOBON, Olber Eduardo; PUERTA, Isabel Cristina  and  PINEDA, David A.. Factorial structure of the executive function from the behavioral domain. Diversitas [online]. 2008, vol.4, n.1, pp.63-77. ISSN 1794-9998.

The objective of this study was to determine the structure of the Executive Function (EF) from the derived behavioral domain of the subscales of parents and teachers of the BRIEF (Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function) in offender adolescents with conduct disorder (CD) and a control group (no-CD) of the Valley of Aburrá . The sample was 128 adolescents: 56 offenders with CD and 72 non offenders no-CD. It was carried out a factorial analysis with the punctuations of the subscales of the BRIEF. A factorial structure of the behaviors of the EF was observed with an only factor in both groups. This factor was denominated System of Behavioral Supervision (SBS). The BRIEF evaluates a SBS that differentiates significantly both groups.
