Abstract

Purpose: The main aim of this study was to review whether first-degree relatives (parents) and their children with neurodevelopmental disorders (NDD) are cognitive endophenotypes in executive functioning.

Method: A survey design was employed from May 2018 to January 2019, using an online and offline database of national and international ISSN Journals and ISBN books.

Results: A bibliometric analysis was conducted on 19 of the 63 reviewed studies. A PRISMA Flow diagram and Harvest Plot have been used to depict the results of the analysis

Conclusion and Implications: Delineation of executive functions (EF) as cognitive endophenotypes of NDD is, first of all, useful in exploring the genetic basis of these disorders; secondly, for identifying which cognitive traits may be important to it; and thirdly, to initiate and promote better educational practices and cognitive remediation. With a disclaimer that this analysis is only as inclusive as possible in the field of endophenotypes in NDD, limitations in the various studies have been identified, along with future suggestions for research.
