INTRODUCTION. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most frequent neurodevelopmental problem in childhood, with significant repercussions that continue into adulthood. This means that an appropriate therapeutic intervention is vital to improve its prognosis. AIMS. To identify the ideal pharmacological options according to the(More)
INTRODUCTION Evoked potentials P300 and the analysis of executive functions have shown their utility in the monitoring of patients with symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). PATIENTS AND METHODS Neuropsychological profiles and evoked potentials P300 have been analysed for two groups of children with an ADHD treatment with(More)
INTRODUCTION AND AIMS . In this work we analyse the syntax used by children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) when writing texts with a narrative and argumentative superstructure. The basic data analysed are the ratio of syntactic complexity and the relative distribution of verb tenses, assuming that in fusional languages like(More)

The interest in its neurophysiological correlates has led to an improvement in the identification of the symptoms, the characteristics and the treatment of the disorder. AIMS The objective of this study was to analyse the correlation(More)
INTRODUCTION The prevalence of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in patients with epilepsy stands at around 30-40%, especially the inattentive subtype, while other studies on children diagnosed with ADHD show figures that vary from 6.1% to 30% which present alterations in the electroencephalogram and epilepsy problems. Although clinical(More)
