Who We Are

We are a research lab in the clinical psychology department located at Purdue University. We are dedicated to understanding the basic processes contributing to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) to ultimately improve assessment, diagnosis, and treatment of ADHD. We rely on individuals and families in our community to take part in our studies, and we rely on students to meet our growing research needs.

What We Study and Why

Increasing numbers of children and adults are diagnosed with ADHD, yet its diagnosis is controversial and existing treatments fall short. The iCAN Lab uses a multi-method approach that combines parent and teacher input, cognitive tests, and measures of brain response to understand the fundamental processes contributing to ADHD. We are especially interested in the unique differences between individuals with ADHD. Our long-term goals are to improve clinical assessment and diagnosis and inform the development of new treatments.
