Talk Title: Measuring Attention Control: Oscillations, Connectivity, ADHD
Abstract: In this talk I will discuss our efforts to qualify and quantify the mechanisms of attention control. I will review neuroimaging measures - oscillations as measured by EEG, connectivity estimated by fMRI - that track attention-related processes, including how they may go awry in ADHD. I will also discuss the emerging questions in the measurement and conceptualization of these processes, their measurement, and their application to real-world settings.
Biography: Agatha Lenartowicz, Ph.D., is Associate Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences at UCLA. She holds a Ph.D. degree in Psychology and Neuroscience from Princeton University, and has over 15 years\' experience in cognitive neuroscience of attention and its deficits. Over the past seven years, she has worked to develop a translational arm to her research, including basic mechanisms and rehabilitative approaches to attention deficits in ADHD, and is a past Klingenstein Third Generation Fellow and a NARSAD Young Investigator in recognition of this translational work. She is a pioneer in the use of concurrent EEG-fMRI recordings in the study of the attention system and especially its disorders in ADHD. She is also actively building a mobile-EEG research program to assess attention in the real-world, in particular in the classroom. Dr. Lenartowicz is the Operations Director at the Staglin OneMind IMHRO Center for Cognitive Neuroscience and is the director of the EEG Analysis Core at the Semel Institute of Neuroscience and Human Behavior.
