ADHD Brain Study

ADHD Brain Study

In this research study, we would like to learn more about how brain activity relates to attention, impulse control, and behavior regulation. Participation in this study involves a single, 3-hour visit to the Center on Human Development and Disability (CHDD) on the UW Medical Center Campus.

The visit includes an electroencephalogram (EEG) and neuropsychological (cognitive and academic) testing. EEG is painless and non-invasive and would involve your child wearing a special hat while watching videos and listening to sounds. Participants receive a written report with neuropsychological test results, $40, and free parking.

Participant Eligibility

– Child is between the ages of 7-11 years
– Child has a diagnosis of ADHD (any clinical subtype)
– Child does not have a diagnosis of autism, intellectual disability, or a seizure disorder

– We are also recruiting healthy volunteer children without a diagnosis of ADHD or a family history of ADHD
