Research interests:
My areas of scientific and clinical interests are connected with ADHD and related disorders. The main goal of my studies is improvement of executive functions (attention, inhibition and working memory) as well as emotional and behavioral self-regulation. Another my research objective is development new effective methods of diagnose ADHD and monitor the level of this disorder in the treatment process.
