Congratulations to TNP student Brianne Mohl for successfully defending her dissertation entitled, "Neural Alterations Influencing Skilled Reading in ADHD: A Task-based fMRI Study" on February 27, 2015Dr. Mohl, under the direction and mentorship of Jeffrey Stanley, PhD, developed a novel approach of characterizing an individual's proficiency in and balance between sounding out or sight reading words.  The novel index predicted neural activation patterns related to these basic skills in typically developing children and children with ADHD or ADHD with reading disability and has implications for identifying which reading remediation strategies will most benefit an individual.  We are all very proud of you!!!”
