Impulse control disorders in Parkinson disease: a cross-sectional study of 3090 patients.
Dopamine agonist treatment in PD is associated with 2- to 3.5-fold increased odds of having an ICD, which represents a drug class relationship across ICDs.
Developmental neurocircuitry of motivation in adolescence: a critical period of addiction vulnerability.
An exploration of developmental changes in neurocircuitry involved in impulse control has significant implications for understanding adolescent behavior, addiction vulnerability, and the prevention of addiction in adolescence and adulthood.
Gender-related differences in the characteristics of problem gamblers using a gambling helpline.
Individuals with gambling disorders have gender-related differences in underlying motivations to gamble and in problems generated by excessive gambling.
Association of dopamine agonist use with impulse control disorders in Parkinson disease.

Probing Compulsive and Impulsive Behaviors, from Animal Models to Endophenotypes: A Narrative Review
It is suggested that impulsivity and compulsivity each seem to be multidimensional, and Serotonin and dopamine interact across these circuits to modulate aspects of both impulsive and compulsive responding and as yet unidentified brain-based systems may also have important functions.
Introduction to Behavioral Addictions
Growing evidence suggests that behavioral addictions resemble substance addictions in many domains, including natural history, phenomenology, tolerance, comorbidity, overlapping genetic contribution, neurobiological mechanisms, and response to treatment, supporting the DSM-V Task Force proposed new category of Addiction and Related Disorders encompassing both substance use disorders and non-substance addictions.
Internet Gaming Disorder
The Internet is now an integral, even inescapable part of many people’s daily lives; they turn to it to send messages, read news, conduct business and much more. But recent scientific reports have
Validation of the questionnaire for impulsive‐compulsive disorders in Parkinson's disease
Scores on the QUIP appear to be valid as a self‐assessment screening instrument for a range of ICDs and other compulsive behaviors that occur in PD, and a shortened version may perform as well as the full version.

The current state of knowledge suggests that there exist substantial similarities between PG and SUDs, and further research is indicated prior to categorizing PG and other ICDs together with Suds.
Impulse control disorders in parkinson disease: A multicenter case–control study
To assess factors associated with impulse control disorders (ICDs) in Parkinson disease (PD) using a multicenter case–control design, a network-based approach is used.
