ConclusionsUsing clinical diagnosis and behavioral measures of executive function, no differences in functional connectivity were observed among the categories examined. Despite our limited ability to detect small- to medium-sized differences between groups, this work contributes to a growing literature suggesting that traditional diagnostic categories do not define neurobiologically separable groups. Future work is necessary to ascertain the validity of the executive function-based nosology, but current results suggest that nosologies reliant on behavioral data alone may not lead to discovery of neurobiologically distinct categories.

In conclusion, these findings provide novel insights into the mechanism of action by MPH in the treatment of ADHD and further suggest that the long-term effectiveness of the stimulant drug could be limited.

CONCLUSION: ADHD symptoms are associated with higher odds for experiencing mental health discrimination and this association is especially elevated in those with the most severe ADHD symptoms. Interventions to inform the general public about ADHD may be important for reducing the stigma and discrimination associated with this disorder in adults.

ConclusionThe effect of ADHD treatment was dependent on baseline, as seen by increases in performance for the low-performers and decreases in impulsivity for the high-impulsive animals. These results agree with clinical data and may support the inverted U-shaped arousal-performance theory. The rCPT combined with behavioral separation into subgroups has high predictive validity, and our study is a step forward towards establishing the clinical translatability of the rCPT.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is estimated to impact approximately ∼5% of college students and can profoundly affect this population due to increasing independence and self-responsibility. Historically, studies of this population have been limited in both sample size and scope, with research primarily focusing on the cognitive dimensions and drug use comorbiditie s of the disorder. Here, we use responses from a national dataset of college students in order to integrate multiple epidemiological and health behavior psychological factors to create a more comprehensive understanding of the health and well...

Despite that attention deficit/hyperactivity (ADHD) symptoms may resolve with age, research regarding ADHD symptoms in the Taiwanese young population is relatively scarce. The current study is to examine the gender difference in the correlation between ADHD symptoms and risk behavior profiles among Taiwanese youth

By Emma Young For every girl with ADHD, there are three boys with the same diagnosis. But among adults, the gender ratio is more like 1:1. That’s a big discrepancy. So what’s going on?  In 2017, Aja Louise Murray and colleagues investigated possible predictors of childhood vs. later (adolescent/adult-onset) ADHD, and they found hints that girls tend to develop ADHD at a later age than boys. Now a team that includes the same researchers has investigated this explicitly and in their paper in Developmental Science, they’ve confirmed it seems to be the case, which could partially explain the discrepancy ...

AbstractNeurodevelopmental disorders are prevalent, frequently occur in comorbidity and share substantial genetic correlation. Previous evidence has suggested a role for theADGRL3 gene in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) susceptibility in several samples. Considering ADGRL3 functionality in central nervous system development and its previous association with neurodevelopmental disorders, we aimed to assessADGRL3 influence in early-onset ADHD (before 7  years of age) and Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The sample comprises 187 men diagnosed with early-onset ADHD, 135 boys diagnosed with ASD and 468 male ...
