Stop What You're Doing! —An fMRI Study on Comparisons of Neural Subprocesses of Response Inhibition in ADHD and Alcohol Use Disorder
Conclusions: Even though deficits in response inhibition are related to both ADHD and AUD, neural activation and recruited networks during response inhibition differ regarding both neuronal subprocesses and examined groups. While a replication of this study is needed in a larger sample, the results suggest that tasks have to be carefully selected when examining neural activation patterns of response inhibition either in research on various psychiatric disorders or transdiagnostic questions.
CONCLUSIONS: From a genetic perspective, AUD differs substantially as a function of AAO, recurrence, mode of ascertainment and patterns of comorbidity, suggesting caution in cross-sample comparisons of AUD cohorts that differ in these features.PMID:34620257 | DOI:10.1017/S0033291721003317
CONCLUSIONS AND DISCUSSION: ADHD in adults with tramadol use is common and is associated with early-onset, high dose, and long duration of tramadol use.SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: This is the first study to investigate the co-occurrence of ADHD and tramadol misuse among adults.PMID:34608707 | DOI:10.1111/ajad.13231
CONCLUSIONS: Despite the small and unequal sample size, our study suggests common neurobiological alterations in AUD and ADHD, supporting the hypothesis that ADHD might be a risk factor for the development of an AUD. The results highlight the importance of an early ADHD diagnosis and treatment to reduce this risk for a subsequent AUD.PMID:33690916 | DOI:10.1111/acer.14593
ConclusionsOur findings support the hypothesis that ADHD additionally diminishes inhibition ability in individuals with AUD. This may increase relapse risk when confronted with alcohol cues. Further, it is crucial for patients with comorbid AUD and ADHD to take into account not only reduced cognitive control over behavioral inhibition but also simultaneously heightened alcohol cue-reactivity.
Conclusion: This study found that HIV-infected pubertal children showed a delayed cortical maturation with atrophy. This abnormal pattern of cortical development may be the structural basis for cognitive impairment in HIV-infected children. Introduction Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS)-related encephalopathy is one of the most serious complications of AIDS and is more common in children than in adults (1). At present, there are nearly 2 million children living with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in the world, almost all newly infected children are infected through mother-to-child transmission (2).

Here, we studied neurobiological correlates of emotion processing in several major psychiatric disorders. We assessed differences between diagnostic groups, and investigated...
Conclusions: Limited activation patterns in ARND suggest problems in information processing along the ventral frontoparietal attention pathway. Poor integrity of the ILF, which connects the functional components of the ventral attention network, in ARND subjects may contribute to the attention deficits characteristic of the disorder.
