A recent study published in The Journal of Neuroscience used brain imaging to characterize the brain networks of young adults with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) compared to a group without it. The results showed that the frontal, temporal, and occipital cortices were abnormally connected within the brain of individuals with ADHD. The findings also revealed a deficit in both emotional/motivational and attentional/perceptual control systems in ADHD.
A recent study published in the journal Pediatrics found that adolescent Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a major predictor of physical, mental, and financial stress in adulthood. The researchers conclude that early diagnosis and treatment of adolescent ADHD is crucial in preventing and alleviating the increased difficulties associated in adulthood.
