In brief: Other way around

Executive function is one facet of cognitive function (or impairment if lost).
Apraxia (inability to do simple mechanical tasks like buttoning shirt), aphasia (inability to speak intelligibly), agnosia (inability to name recognizable objects) & memory loss are other components of cognitive function/impairment. This can be evaluated during any visit w/simple questions.
