Dr. Lenartowicz's research focuses on the phenomenon on attention control and addresses three questions:

  • MechanismsWhat are the neural dynamics - time course and within network interactions - by which attending and ignoring is implemented in the brain? What is the contribution of other systems, such as those that determine internal states (e.g., fatigue, anxiety, arousal, vigilance) to these neural dynamics?

  • DeficitsBy what mechanisms can attention control be disrupted, contributing to deficits such as ADHD? How is attention control sustained for prolonged periods of time? How and why does it get disrupted?

  • RehabilitationHow can attention control mechanisms be improved, such as through training or relaxation (e.g., yoga, meditation, exercise)?
