Brocki SR Lab
The focus of Brocki SR Lab's research is on understanding the developmental mechansims of executive functions (EF) and more broadly on self-regulation (SR) capacity (i.e., the conscious control of thought, emotion and behavior) from infancy to adolescence from a multiple pathway perspective. Brocki SR Lab studies both typical and atypical development and is also interested in the role of SR in developmental disorders such as ADHD and Autism. The research group is led by Karin Brocki.
