members of the unit in the office

The Human Developmental Neurobiology Unit investigates the nature, causes, and management of ADHD. Unit members study why children diagnosed with ADHD respond differently to reinforcement, and they work with colleagues overseas conducting fMRI and drug studies to explore the disorder’s underlying neurobiology. The unit is also studying the social problem solving skills of children with ADHD and developing a skills program for Japanese parents dealing with ADHD.
