Age-Related Changes in Auditory Nogo-N200 Latency in Medication-Na ïve Children and Adolescents with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
CONCLUSION: Our findings revealed age-related changes in nogo-N200 latency at the Fz and Cz electrodes in individuals with ADHD. Future studies should perform comparisons with healthy controls to determine whether auditory nogo-N200 can be used to evaluate the developmental level in individuals with ADHD.
