Brain Plasticity Underlying Acquisition of New Organizational Skills in Children

2019-10-03 07:54:42 | BioPortfolio


Organizational, time management and planning (OTMP) skills deficits are impairing features of developmental disorders, such as Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), which compromise school performance and family relations. The manualized Organizational Skills Training program (OST) was designed to target children's specific OTMP deficits. However, the brain mechanisms of treatment-induced changes remain unknown. The current study combines a training intervention (OST) with non-invasive MRI imaging in a pre-/post-design in a randomized two-arm (treatment vs. waitlist) trial to address this question.
