ADHD was once believed to be a disorder of childood, which we now know is not the case. What predicts ADHD persistence? Our work, recently published in the Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, provides some answers to this question (see also our 'Publications' page to download a copy of this manuscript).
Graduate students in the CAN Lab will be presenting their work at the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science in Chicago, IL this week. Martyn Gabel will be discussing how emotional experiences may have a negative or positive impact on our executive skills depending on how emotional we are in general. Tamara Rosner will be discussing how our executive skills and personality traits uniquely influence how we accomplish the goals that we set for ourselves in everyday life.
