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)
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)
