Homepage Kids

Welcome to the homepage for the Center for Research of Attention and Behavior. Our research clinic is located on the campus of Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, OK. The Center for Research of Attention and Behavior is associated with the Ph.D. graduate program in clinical psychology at OSU.

Our research examines potential core deficits or neurocognitive deficits associated with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by re-examining existing models (e.g., behavioral inhibition), and contributing to the development and refinement of alternative models (e.g., working memory). Findings from this line of research challenge prevailing views concerning the central role of behavioral inhibition deficits in ADHD, provide support for working memory as the primary deficit of the disorder, and form a framework for the eventual development of novel treatment modalities.

Students interested in applying to the OSU doctoral program in clinical psychology, and/or undergraduates interested in volunteering as a research assistant at the Center for Research of Attention and Behavior, are encouraged to visit the Research and For Students pages for relevant information.

Parents of children interested in participating in our research are encouraged to visit the For Parents page for additional information.
