In Dr. Tom Hummer's Media and Brain Development Lab, we examine how digital media impacts brain structure and function, including how advanced digital technology can be used to assess and treat mental health impairments during childhood and adolescence. This study will utilize virtual reality and neuroimaging technology to help further our understanding of how children with ADHD and disruptive behavior disorders perceive the thoughts, feelings, and actions of those around them. This work will help us develop adaptive VR programs aimed at improving empathy and social decision-making in children with social-cognitive deficits.
