Research description

The research conducted in my group involves cognitive functioning and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children, adolescents and adults. More specifically, we examine the following aspects; 1) early cognitive deficits in relation to later behavior problems, 2) possible mediators in the link between ADHD symptoms and poor academic achievement, 3) the link between emotion regulation and peer problems, 4) the development of questionnaire and laboratory measures of executive functioning and emotion regulation
