Dr. Isabella Paul-Jordanov

 
 

Aetiology of developmental disorders:


- Identification of pre-, peri-, and postnatal risk factors


Auditory development:


- Sound segregation

- Spatial hearing

- Bottom up vs. top-down modulation of auditory perception


Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD):


- Relationship between ADHD and Auditory Processing Deficit (APD)

- Cortical characteristics of ADHD (subtypes)

- Error Processing

- Cross-modal inhibition performance and cortical correlates

- Influence of training and medication on cortical and behavioural parameters
