In this study, 214 patients aged 8 –15 years from an ADHD outpatient clinic were assessed, and 100 typically developing controls (TD) were recruited as comparisons. No psychiatric comorbidities except for oppositional defiant disorder were allowed. We compared 29 cases with ADHD + SCT with 34 ADHD-RI cases and 92 TD subjects o n sociodemographic profiles, CBCL subscales scores and neurocognitive findings. Regarding sociodemographic profiles (age, gender and parental education) and CBCL subscales, ADHD + SCT and ADHD-RI cases did not differ in any score (allp >  0.05)....

This study examined the psychometric properties, convergent validity, and divergent validity of a Japanese translation of Barkley (The Barkley adult ADHD rating scale –IV, Guilford Press, New York,2011) rating scale for assessing sluggish cognitive tempo (SCT) in adults. In total, 429 Japanese adults participated across three samples: 26 diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD; ages 19 –50), 81 adults without ADHD (ages 22–65), and 322 university students (ages 18–27). All participants completed rating scales of SCT, ADHD, anxiety, and depressive symptoms. A subset of participa...

This study further revealed the association between immune factors and hyperactivity in SHR rats fed with high-dose taurine. A positive correlation was detected between systolic blood pressure (SBP) and horizontal locomotion in SHR rats fed with high-dose taurine. Significantly higher striatal Hsp27 and galectin-3 were detected in SHR rats fed with high-dose taurine. Significantly lower IL-2 and IL-6 were detected in SHR rats fed with high-dose taurine, whereas significantly higher IL-10 was detected. Significantly increased splenic CD4+CD25+Foxp3+ regulatory T cells was detected in SHR rats fed with high-dose taurine with...

ConclusionCompared with girls in the general population, girls with epilepsy seem to be at a higher risk of being diagnosed with ADHD/ASD as the gender ratio is more equal. This could be related to differences in the assessment of CWE and/or a shared pathogenesis between psychiatric conditions and epilepsy.

AbstractChildren with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) experience high rates of temperamental negative affect and comorbid internalizing and externalizing pathology. The current study explored the role of emotion-specific regulation in accounting for the link between temperamental negative affect and psychopathology among children with ADHD. Forty parents of children ages 8 –11 (N  =29 males, N  =11 females) completed measures of child temperament, emotion-specific dysregulation (i.e., anger dysregulation, sadness dysregulation), and psychopathology. Children completed a measure of emotio...

AbstractThere is sparse research on quality of life (QoL) as an outcome measure in patients with substance use disorders (SUD), with or without attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). We aimed to investigate whether SUD patients with and without ADHD (SUD  + ADHD vs. SUD − ADHD) differed in QoL at baseline and at a 12-month follow-up after SUD treatment. The groups were additionally compared with data from a national population sample (NPS). From a sample of 16 SUD + ADHD and 87 SUD − ADHD patients originally recruited between 201 0 and 2012, eigh...
