Carrie x Anne-Laure at ADHD Lab
Carrie Ravenscroft and Anne-Laure Le Cunff were selected through an Open Call to collaboratively create an artwork in the ADHD Lab at King's College London.
About Anne-Laure Le Cunff
I study neurodiversity in online education, which means that I try to understand how different brains learn differently in an online learning environment. Ultimately, my goal is to publish evidence-based guidelines to help educators design inclusive online learning experiences, so no learner is left behind! In my research, I use eye-tracking and electroencephalography (EEG). Eye-tracking gives us heat maps showing where people look and for how long, and EEG gives us wave patterns of brain activity. With these techniques, I can record data relevant to attention and working memory load, which helps me explore how the brains of different learners react differently when engaged in online learning.

About Carrie Ravenscroft
I am a neurodivergent, queer artist and art therapist from London, currently working at Mind as a mental health support worker. I initially ran groups here, as a volunteer, for women, asylum seekers and LGBTQ+ clients. I moved onto facilitating wellbeing workshops for Portugal Prints, The Big Draw and Jennifer Lauren Gallery. Additionally, I am a psychedelic first aid volunteer with Psycare. I got diagnosed with ADHD a few years ago at the age of 30, which significantly shifted my life in new ways. I’m learning this is a common experience for many women and feel motivated to speak out about it with the tools I have: art! My artistic journey has been heavily influenced by my own lived-experience. I'm eager to collaborate with neuroscientists, who can offer variety as well as a scientific and educational knowledge base to support my visuals.

About ADHD Lab
The ADHD research lab conducts research on Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder with a particular focus on adults who are often under-represented in research. We conduct research into the experiences of those with ADHD and how it can be managed with a focus on non-pharmacological treatments. However, being based at King's College London, we are also interested in what ADHD means for students during their university journey. Statistically, ADHD'ers are less likely to succeed in higher education than those who are not ADHD. Even though there is quite a lot of research into ADHD in primary and secondary level education, there is little focusing on what works and what does not work at university level and this an area we are currently working on. As such, we conduct research into how people with ADHD (as well as others who fall under the umbrella term of neurodiversity) experience learning and the strategies they develop to be successful in higher education.
