Event-related potential studies in healthy adults and children have shown that stimuli signaling the need to stop elicit a robust, right-frontal-maximal N2 that is strongly reduced in children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. To further investigate the mechanisms of normal response inhibition, the Stop Signal Task was applied to 12 healthy(More)
Deficits in response inhibition may be at the core of the cognitive syndrome in ADHD. Here, inhibitory control mechanisms were studied in 36 ADHD-combined type and 30 healthy children by exploring the event-related brain activity during the Stop Signal task. The influence of age, gender, and previous treatment history was evaluated. The ADHD group showed(More)
