Social Processing in Girls with and without Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
This study examines social peer functioning in adolescent girls, with a specific focus in identifying underlying neural mechanisms.
This study consists of one in-person visit lasting around 4 hours in which parents and child subjects complete questionnaires about the child's emotional and behavioral well-being. Next, the child will play three computer games while EEG (electroencephalogram) data are collected. The child will also participate in an observational task with another girl her age, which last approximately 25 minutes and will be video/audio recorded. Lastly, the researchers will help the child download a survey app to her phone/tablet, which will send her brief surveys about her social interactions for two weeks after the visit. Parents and child subjects will also be able to complete an optional follow-up visit one year after the initial study visit, which will consist of more questionnaires regarding the child's emotional and behavioral well-being.
