Current Research

Child Affective Picture System-Reward

The purpose of this study is to develop a better understanding of how children process reward-related images. We are specifically interested in comparing social and non-social reward cues and determining whether distinct patterns of neural reactivity correspond to self-regulation skills.

Attention, Behavior, Learning, and Emotions

The purpose of this study is to examine the ways that individuals with ADHD process emotions and maintain attention through a variety of computer tasks.

Neuro-Drive

The purpose of this study is to examine different attention profiles of young drivers with and without ADHD. This two-part study involves one visit to our EEG lab and one visit to the Human Performance Lab's driving simulator.

iPads and Children's Attention Networks

The purpose of this study is to learn how mobile technology can influence children's cognitive functioning. We are specifically interested in neural and behavioral measures of attention.

Self-Concept and Children's Attention to the Learning Environment

The purpose of this study is to examine whether young children's performance on a selective attention task could be altered by the perception of a task-related gender bias.
