Original Research: Academic Publications


Jacqueline’s research utilised neuroimaging data from the International Study to Predict Optimised Treatment Response (iSPOT-A) trial to analyse the underlying neural mechanisms and network pathways of the ADHD-Combined and ADHD-Inattentive presentation types using structural and functional data and brain network (connectomics) analyses. The iSPOT-A was an international, Phase-IV, multicentre, interventional open-label trial to identify objective diagnostic biomarkers of ADHD and predict treatment response to short-acting methylphenidate (MPH) in children and adolescents diagnosed with ADHD.


Jacqueline’s research was undertaken as part of doctoral research at the University of Sydney and Westmead Insititute of Medical Research under the supervision of Assoc Prof Dr Mayuresh Korgoankar, and iSPOT-A academic and chief investigators: Professors Simon Clarke and Michael Kohn (Sydney University Medical School), and Professor Leanne Williams (Stanford Medicine).
