Proposal details

Title: Working Memory in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
Research Area(s): ADHD and Allied Conditions
Background: Core symptomatology of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (AD/HD) includes deficits in prioritising, organising and panning in a goal directed manner, which are indicative of Working Memory (WM) abnormality. Accordingly, neuropsychological and psychophysiological related WM indices have been reported to be atypical in AD/HD samples.
Aims: This study aims to investigate differences in ERP components during a WM task between children with AD/HD and controls.
Method: ERP component data from the WM paradigm will be analysed from children diagnosed with AD/HD and controls.
