Executive functions, visuospatial bootstrapping and pseudoneglect in relation to Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder: A correlational study
(2016) Executive functions, visuospatial bootstrapping and pseudoneglect in relation to Attention-Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder: A correlational study, no. 30.
ADHD diagnosis and Executive function deficits are of increasing concern as the knowledge about the condition continues to expand. 100 participants were collected to partake in this study. In this dissertational study a correlational method was used to see the relationship between ADHD symptom markers and Executive Function tasks along with tasks of attention. The Executive Function tasks that were used differed from previous research, meaning that tasks not normally chosen to test the effect of ADHD on Executive Function performance were chosen. This was to allow this study to stand out from previous research within this field. Results of this study found that age correlated highly with ADHD symptom markers from a self-report questionnaire. There were many unexpected correlations which may be interesting for further research in the future. Conclusions of this study show that no correlation was observed between ADHD and the Executive Function tasks used within this study.
