AHEAD Study

The ADHD Heterogeneity of Executive Function/Emotion Regulation Across Development (AHEAD) study is a collaboration between child clinical psychologist Dr. Paulo Graziano of the S.E.L.F-Regulation Laboratory and developmental cognitive neuroscientist Dr. Anthony Dick of the Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience Laboratory. The AHEAD study aims to characterize the heterogeneity of young children’s abilities to regulate their behaviors and emotions across multiple levels of analysis, using functional and structural magnetic resonance imaging, and psychophysiological measurements of nervous system function. The work will advance the classification of ADHD, which will encourage novel ways to define and understand the disorder, with the aim of developing novel approaches to the treatment of ADHD.

With such a big project, a number of people come together to make it work. Below is the AHEAD study team:
