Research Interests

Dr. Raiker's research focuses on understanding the impact of neurocognitive deficits (e.g., working memory, information processing) on the primary (e.g., inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity) and secondary (e.g., academic achievement, social problems) features associated with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children. He has begun examining the interaction of multiple dysfunctional cognitive processes and is interested in the implications of these deficits for intervention strategies targeted at reducing the adverse functional outcomes experienced by children and adolescents with ADHD as well as the integration of neuroimaging in further understanding ADHD.
