insula ADHD error awareness
Project description

There is increasing evidence that deficient error awareness plays an important role in the self-regulation problems associated with ADHD. Research has shown that the insula, which is a part of the salience network, is critically involved in error awareness. In the current project, we will evaluate whether dysfunction in the insula may underly the deficit in error awareness in ADHD.
