Project description

There is increasing evidence that the default mode network is disturbed in ADHD. Individuals with ADHD are less able to suppress this network during task performance and may have problems with the transition from rest to task. In the current project fMRI and EEG will be used to increase our insight into the transition of rest to task in adults with ADHD.
