The association between executive function deficits (EFDs) and functional outcomes were examined among children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Participants were children and adolescents with (n = 259) and without (n = 222) ADHD, as ascertained from pediatric and psychiatric clinics. The authors defined EFD as at least(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to examine the long-term effects of extended-release mixed amphetamine salts (MAS-XR) with 10-30-mg doses on the growth of children being treated for attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). METHODS Long-term growth data were collected from 568 children, 6-12 years of age, enrolled in a multicenter, open-label(More)
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is hypothesized to be due, in part, to structural defects in brain networks influencing cognitive, affective, and motor behaviors. Although the current literature on fiber tracts is limited in ADHD, gray matter abnormalities suggest that white matter (WM) connections may be altered selectively in neural(More)
BACKGROUND Our objective was to estimate the lifetime prevalence of psychopathology in a sample of youth with and without attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) through young adulthood using contemporaneous diagnostic and analytic techniques. METHOD We conducted a case-control, 10-year prospective study of ADHD youth. At baseline, we assessed(More)
OBJECTIVES Gray and white matter volume deficits have been reported in a number of studies of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); however, there is a paucity of structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of adults with ADHD. This structural MRI study used an a priori region of interest approach. METHODS Twenty-four(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate functional impairments in a nonreferred sample of adults identifying themselves as having been diagnosed with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by a clinician in their community. METHOD We completed a survey in April and May 2003 of a community sample of 500 adults who reported having(More)
Converging evidence from family, twin, and adoption studies points to a substantial genetic component of the etiology of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). These data about ADHD have motivated molecular genetic studies of the disorder, which have produced intriguing but somewhat conflicting results. Some studies have reported associations with(More)
OBJECTIVE The main aim of this study was to evaluate the association between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and major depression (MD) in adolescent and young adult females. METHOD Subjects were females with (n = 140) and without (n = 122) ADHD ascertained from pediatric and psychiatric settings. Subjects were followed prospectively for 5(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the association between attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and eating disorders in a large adolescent population of girls with and without ADHD. METHOD We estimated the incidence of lifetime eating disorders (either anorexia or bulimia nervosa) using Cox proportional hazard survival models. Comparisons between ADHD girls(More)
OBJECTIVE Few follow-up studies have been conducted of girls with ADHD, and none have followed girls into adulthood. The authors sought to estimate the prevalence of psychopathology in girls with and without ADHD followed into young adulthood. METHOD The authors conducted a longitudinal case-control study of 6- to 18-year-old girls with (N=140) and(More)
