Dr. Delli Paoli is interested in how physical activity may help those who experience social challenges, such as being ignored, left out or rejected. This research focuses on young adults, typically developing children, and children with ADHD. His research program integrates evidence across social, cognitive, and neurophysiological domains to better understand social challenges in physical activity settings such as sport, physical education and exercise. An overarching goal of this research is to promote quality physical activity experiences for young people such that they translate into active and healthy lifestyles into adulthood.
