TROUBLES DÉFICITAIRES DE L’ATTENTION ET CERVEAU
RÉSUMÉ (Cette conférence sera traduite en simultané)Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral disorder characterized by inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity, of childhood onset that persist in many cases into adulthood. Recent studies show that ADHD is a heterogeneous disorder. Hence, unraveling the complex pattern of cognitive functioning is important for the evaluation and treatment of each individual with ADHD. Based on recent findings in ADHD, a set of attention tasks, the Attention Diagnostic System – ADS, and a Computerized Progressive Attention training (CPAT) program were developed in my lab. In this talk, I will first present the current knowledge in the neural and behavioral correlates of ADHD. Then, I will explain the heterogeneous cognitive characteristics of individuals with ADHD and I will discuss a series of studies that demonstrate that we can train attention and cognitive control and that the outcomes of this training are transferable in different educational settings. I will also address innovative simple teaching and learning techniques that can facilitate learning according to the personal features of each individual learner.
