Katherine Johnson

 

My research is in the area of developmental cognitive neuroscience. I am interested in executive control of behaviour, with a special focus on attention control in infants, children, and young adults.

I research sustained attention and attention orienting. Sustained attention is the ability to maintain attention to a task, especially when the task is non-arousing, and effort is required to keep concentrating. Attention orienting is the ability to flexibly direct attentional resources to a stimulus at a moment in time or location in space. I research children and adults with developmental disorders, including Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and typically developing people.
