Practical Training: Measuring Attention and Executive Functions in Behavioural Paradigms
Students will perform several attention and executive function tasks that are frequently applied in clinical and non-clinical developmental settings. The group data will be gathered and given to the students so that they can perform statistical analyses on the data. Each student formulates a research question based on the literature. All research questions will focus on themes within the field of childhood development of attention and executive control and associated disorders such as Autism Spectrum Disorder or ADHD. At the end of the course, students will present and discuss their findings in both group meetings and in a written report.
