Brain development during childhood and adolescence: a longitudinal MRI study
TLDR
This large-scale longitudinal pediatric neuroimaging study confirmed linear increases in white matter, but demonstrated nonlinear changes in cortical gray matter, with a preadolescent increase followed by a postadolescent decrease.
Developmental trajectories of brain volume abnormalities in children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Developmental trajectories for all structures, except caudate, remain roughly parallel for patients and controls during childhood and adolescence, suggesting that genetic and/or early environmental influences on brain development in ADHD are fixed, nonprogressive, and unrelated to stimulant treatment.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is characterized by a delay in cortical maturation
TLDR
Maturation to progress in a similar manner regionally in both children with and without ADHD, with primary sensory areas attaining peak cortical thickness before polymodal, high-order association areas, and there was a marked delay in ADHD in attainingpeak thickness throughout most of the cerebrum.
Structural maturation of neural pathways in children and adolescents: in vivo study.
TLDR
Findings provide evidence for a gradual maturation, during late childhood and adolescence, of fiber pathways presumably supporting motor and speech functions.
Mapping adolescent brain change reveals dynamic wave of accelerated gray matter loss in very early-onset schizophrenia
TLDR
Brain mapping algorithms detected striking anatomical profiles of accelerated gray matter loss in very early-onset schizophrenia; surprisingly, deficits moved in a dynamic pattern, enveloping increasing amounts of cortex throughout adolescence.
Quantitative brain magnetic resonance imaging in girls with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Findings in this study confirm previous findings for boys in the posterior-inferior lobules of the cerebellar vermis for boys with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in girls with ADHD.
Progressive cortical change during adolescence in childhood-onset schizophrenia. A longitudinal magnetic resonance imaging study.
TLDR
Patients with very early-onset schizophrenia had both a 4-fold greater decrease in cortical gray matter volume during adolescence and a disease-specific pattern of change.
Depression and Anxiety in Parents of Children With ADHD and Varying Levels of Oppositional Defiant Behaviors: Modeling Relationships With Family Functioning
TLDR
Results indicated that parental anxiety was negatively associated with Parental Warmth and Positive Involvement, Intrusiveness and Negative Discipline, and Social Distress; parental depression was only positively associated with Socialdistress.
