The use of quantitative neuroimaging (volumetry), motor, and oculomotor assessments for studying children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has grown dramatically in the past 20 years. Most evidence to date suggests that anomalous basal ganglia development plays an important role in early manifestation of ADHD; however, widespread cerebellar and cortical delays are also observed and are associated with the behavioral (cognitive, motor, oculomotor) phenotype in children with… 
Performance lapses in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder contribute to poor reading fluency.
The data support the growing evidence that RT variability, but not simply slower mean response speed, is the characteristic of youth with ADHD and that longer response time latencies (tau) may be implicated in the poorer academic performance associated with ADHD.
Effect of a visual tracking intervention on attention and behavior of children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
It seems that eye-tracking interventions designed based on the isolation of neck and eye movement might have an important role in improving cognitive function and coping behaviors in these children with ADHD.
Is There a Functional Relation Between Set Shifting and Hyperactivity in Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)?
Inhibition demands do not cause children to upregulate their physical activity and set shifting produces reliable increases in children’s physical movement/hyperactivity over and above the effects of general cognitive demands but cannot specifically explain hyperactivity in children with ADHD.

Inhibitory control is a heterogeneous domain involving multiple inhibitory processes at levels of behavior, attention/cognition, and emotion/motivation and three measures neurocognitive of inhibitory control, Stroop Color–Word Score, CPT-II Commission Errors, and WCST Failure to Maintain Set were used in the present study.
Case report: neuroimaging analysis of pediatric ADHD-related symptoms secondary to hypoxic brain injury
The diagnosis of this patient despite having non-characteristic neuroimaging data suggests a unique specificity of the hypoxic injury to the development of a secondary hypoxic brain injury caused ADHD.
Exercise Interventions in Children and Adolescents With ADHD: A Systematic Review
No evidence-based recommendation can be formulated regarding frequency, intensity, or duration of exercise in children and adolescents with ADHD, but some first trends regarding the effects of certain types of exercise can be identified.
Development of coordination and muscular fitness in children and adolescents with parent-reported ADHD in the German longitudinal MoMo Study
This study examined the development of muscular fitness and coordination in children and adolescents with and without attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) over a period of 11 years. Data
Assessing ADHD in Preschool Children
Do you know these 10 signs that may help you differentiate early signs of ADHD from the “typical” behavior of a 3- to 4-year-old?


Evaluation of Cerebellar Size in Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The finding of abnormal inferior posterior vermal size suggests that dysfunction within this region of the cerebellum may underlie clinical deficits seen in individuals with ADHD.
A Preliminary Neuroimaging Study of Preschool Children with ADHD
Left caudate volume was a significant predictor of hyperactive/impulsive, but not inattentive symptom severity, and anomalous basal ganglia development appears to play an important role among children presenting with early onset symptoms of ADHD.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is characterized by a delay in cortical maturation
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.
New insights into attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder using structural neuroimaging
This article reviews recent advances in structural neuroimaging in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Observational studies have found treatment with psychostimulants to be associated
Global and regional gray matter reductions in ADHD: A voxel-based morphometric study
Differential patterns of striatal activation in young children with and without ADHD
Development of cortical asymmetry in typically developing children and its disruption in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
These findings explain the way that the increased dimensions of the right frontal and left occipital cortical regions emerge in adulthood from the reversed pattern of childhood cortical asymmetries.
Developmental trajectories of brain volume abnormalities in children and adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
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.
