Dr. Russell Schachar
Dr. Schachar is a leader in cognitive and genetic studies of child psychopathology in particular Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). His widely cited research in response inhibition stimulated the development of new models of inhibitory control, of ADHD and of the mechanism by which genetic and neural risk factors such as brain injury lead to behavioural disorders such as ADHD. These discoveries carry wide and significant implications for normal and atypical development, gene discovery, diagnosis and, ultimately, therapeutic breakthroughs.
