ADHD and Cognition: Tackling Individual Variability with EEG

Dr. Arnett recently received notice of an award from NIH to complete a 2-year study of school-age children with ADHD. The goal of the research is to identify subtypes of ADHD that are defined by common patterns of activity in the brain. The study involves electroencephalography (EEG), which is a non-invasive way of measuring electrical activity in the brain. Children with ADHD show atypical EEG responses to visual and auditory information, as well as atypical EEG patterns when completing a task that requires attention. To find out more about enrolling your child in Dr. Arnett’s study, please see the flyer on this page and/or contact Dr. Arnett at arnettab@uw.edu for more details.
