How does neurodivergent attention affect developing cognition?


This project (2012-2018) investigated how attention difficulties modulate interactions with the environment, and whether these are amenable to intervention. It also contrasted distinct genetic conditions with common high risk of inattention and hyperactivity, to understand similarities and differences in attention trajectories.
