Spanish term or phrase: función ejecutiva
Results of medical tests as cited in court case.

"Estudios neuropsicológicos que demuestran compromiso de atención y concentración, memoria (en especial de retención y corto plazo), aprendizaje, función ejecutiva y procesos intelectuales complejos."

Can we say "executive function" in English or is it something like "decision-making ability"?

Performing ability


Explanation:
I think that "performing ability" should be a good translation bearing in mind that we are talking about an insane who "can´t make decisions or carry them out".

Good luck!
