The unique and shared neuropsychological characteristics of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Conduct Disorder PhD project Nadia Peppa

This project has three main aims:

1.To investigate the neuropsychological profiles of the two disorders and the comorbid condition by the direct comparison between the different groups.

2. To identify the pattern of neurocognitive deficits associated with the two "pure" disorders versus the comorbid condition of ADHD+CD and the extent to which the three groups differ from controls.

3. To identify whether the three clinical groups display similar or different alterations in brain activity, by examining the neural correlates of two neuropsychological domains between the clinical groups and the control group using Event Related Potential (ERP) paradigms.
