The association between executive function deficits (EFDs) and functional outcomes were examined among children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and these results support screening children with ADHD for EFDs to prevent academic failure.
Patterns of psychiatric comorbidity, cognition, and psychosocial functioning in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The results show that referred and nonreferred adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder have a pattern of demographic, psychosocial, psychiatric, and cognitive features that mirrors well-documented findings among children with the disorder.
Influence of gender on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children referred to a psychiatric clinic.
Girls with ADHD were more likely than boys to have the predominantly inattentive type of ADHD, more likely to have a learning disability, and less likely to manifest problems in school or in their spare time, and a statistically significant gender-by-ADHD interaction was identified for comorbid substance use disorders.

Although the association between ADHD and DRD4 is small, these results suggest that it is real and further studies are needed to clarify what variant ofDRD4 accounts for this association.
Genetic relationship between five psychiatric disorders estimated from genome-wide SNPs
Empirical evidence of shared genetic etiology for psychiatric disorders can inform nosology and encourages the investigation of common pathophysiologies for related disorders.
Causal Heterogeneity in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder: Do We Need Neuropsychologically Impaired Subtypes?
Analysis of shared heritability in common disorders of the brain
It is demonstrated that, in the general population, the personality trait neuroticism is significantly correlated with almost every psychiatric disorder and migraine, and it is shown that both psychiatric and neurological disorders have robust correlations with cognitive and personality measures.
