Research project: Exploring the neural markers and neuro-cognive function of children with ADHD: an investigation of the very low frequency brain oscillations during an attention task and different non-task states with EEG

Currently Active: 
Yes

The aim of study is to investigate electrophysiological brain activity during attention task and multiple non-task situations (e.g. resting and waiting) in adults with high and low levels of self-rated ADHD symptoms.

The research objectives are threefold: first, to examine very low frequency EEG activity as a potential correlate of the default-mode network; second, to compare very low frequency activity when participants are asked to a) rest, b) wait and c) engage in an attention task, and examine the association with ADHD symptoms; third, to examine attentional lapses that occur during the task indexed by correct rate and RT variability and investigate the association with very low frequency EEG data. The default-mode network in waiting conditions will also be discussed.
