In this interview, Dr. Jeremy Sharp sits down with Dr. Ellen Braaten to talk through some of Dr. Braaten's recent work on processing speed and psychopathology.

  • Sluggish cognitive tempo vs. inattention
  • How inattention is measured
  • The impact of COVID-19 on learning for kids with sluggish cognitive tempo and slow cognitive processing
  • ADHD and the perception of time, and recommendations to help gauge time more effectively
