Event-related auditory and visual potentials were recorded from 36 attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and 35 normal 6-year-old subjects engaged in a two-choice discrimination task. When normal subjects attended to stimuli in a given modality, enhanced negative (N2) and positive (P3b) responses (as compared with responses to nonattended stimuli)(More)
A longitudinal study of young attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) boys has found clear evidence for developmental abnormalities in event-related potential (ERP) waves that reflect cognitive processes associated with selective attentional tasks. Boys alternated attention to auditory or visual modalities in a train of stimuli, in an attempt to(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the official arrest records for a large number of hyperactive boys (N = 179), most with conduct problems, and 75 control boys; to examine childhood IQ, socioeconomic status, and parent reports of childhood hyperactivity and conduct problems for their contribution to criminal behavior in adulthood; and to compare adult outcome for(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine the relationship between attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity in childhood and criminality in adolescence and adulthood in 89 hyperactive and 87 normal control subjects. METHOD In this prospective study, adolescent follow-up intervals ranged from 13 to 21 years and adult follow-up ranged from 18 to 23 years. The official(More)
Longitudinal and cross-sectional event-related potential, EEG power spectral, and skin conductance level data were obtained from 138 hyperactive and 60 normal boys. A age-by-diagnosis interaction was found for several measures in the cross-sectional data and for all three types of measures in the longitudinal data. These findings emphasize the importance of(More)
Childhood electrophysiological and clinical measures were obtained in 110 hyperactive (HA) and 76 normal children, who were later followed up as adolescents. Official arrest data were obtained on all subjects and used to measure outcome. The usual interpretation, that the presence of a brain function abnormality suggests a poor prognosis, does not apply to(More)
