Current Research

My work is aimed at mapping the neurocognitive profile of ADHD in order to improve diagnostics and treatment. All projects of my PhD are based on the Theory of Visual Attention (TVA) by Prof. Claus Bundesen. The main project of my thesis includes children between the age of 8 and 12 with ADHD as well as clinical controls (children with autism spectrum disorders) and typically developping controls. Side projects involve 1) children with spina bifida myelomeningocele (Danish: rygmarvsbrok, see list of publications) and 2) children with ADHD who are exposed to auditory white noise in order to assess potential positive effects of noise on visual processing and encoding of information.

The main project of my thesis includes children between the age of 8 and 12 with ADHD as well as clinical controls (children with autism spectrum disorders) and normal controls. My newest project investigates the effects of white noise on TVA-performance in adult ADHD patients recruited from Dr. Ulrich Müller’s Adult ADHD Research Clinic, Cambridge.
