"The Developmental Disorders Lab conducts mainly fundamental research into the psychopathological mechanisms of autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, and learning disabilities. Participants are (young) children, adolescents, and adults, which gives the possibility to take into account a developmental dimension. This fundamental research contributes to psychological theory building and has implications for diagnosis and intervention. In addition there is a specific focus on psychophysiological (EEG/ERP/fMRI/fNIRS) research. The lab also participates in cross-national studies on psychological interventions, neurophysiological research in infants, screening of autism spectrum disorder and genetics. "
