Project description

The aim of our research is to provide a direct comparison of two neuropsychological models of ADHD: state regulation and delay aversion. We use behavioral and psychophysiological measurements to test specific predictions of both models and to achieve new insights in the cognitive and motivational processes in ADHD. Our research contributes to psychological theories of ADHD, with implications for diagnostics and treatment.
