EditorialNote The examples are derived from the Wikipedi The examples are derived from the Wikipedia page on 'Mental function.' Perhaps a more narrow set of examples that specifically fit to our requirements in BIRN would be more appropriate. A more authoritative neuropsychological source should also be used, as some of these examples may be considered by neuropsychologists to be degenerate - e.g., 'belief function' is_a 'imaginative function' (BB:2007-03-05). Note that we are distinguishing between processes and functions, so there will appear to be a set of duplicate classes. The distinction as described by BFO, as we understand it, is that functions are end-directed activities of continuants. So memory function is an end activity of a memory process. We therefore measure memory function as an indicator of the effectiveness of the memory process. f the effectiveness of the memory process.
