OBJECTIVES Attention-related differences in early stages of stimulus processing were assessed in healthy controls and children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) by analyzing phase-locked gamma band (31-63 Hz) responses to auditory stimuli in a selective-attention task. METHODS A total of 28 children aged 9-12 years (ADHD and matched healthy controls) pressed a button in response to each target stimulus presented at the attended side (right or left). Auditory gamma band… Expand
Event-related oscillations reflect functional asymmetry in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
It was found that motor cortical activation as reflected by mu power suppression was not overall greater in ADHD than healthy children, and the co-existence of conflict features in complex stimuli induces task-irrelevant motor activation in these children. Expand
Altered evoked gamma-band responses reveal impaired early visual processing in ADHD children
TLDR
In contrast to healthy participants, ADHD children lack an early memory based classification, possibly resulting in an impaired ability to rapidly reallocate attentional resources to relevant stimuli, and this finding indicates disadvantages at early visual processing stages in ADHD patients. Expand
Event-Related Potential Analysis of ADHD and Control Adults During a Sustained Attention Task
TLDR
Findings of reduction in N1, N2 and P3 components highlight deficits of early sensory processing, stimulus categorization, and attentional resources, respectively, in adults with ADHD. Expand
Developmental event‐related gamma oscillations: effects of auditory attention
TLDR
The results indicate that specific aspects of task‐stimulus processing engage distinct spatially localized gamma networks at functionally relevant areas, and the neuronal substrates of gamma band networks and the ability to synchronize them in relation to task‐specific processes are available in all age groups from 9 to 16 years. Expand
Enhanced gamma-band activity in ADHD patients lacks correlation with memory performance found in healthy children
TLDR
Analysis of evoked gamma-band responses (GBRs) during stimulus encoding revealed a strong task-related enhancement for ADHD patients in parieto-occipital areas, which is interpreted as evidence of enhanced excitation levels and unspecific activation of processing resources in ADHD patients. Expand
Early Gamma-Band Activity During Interference Predicts Working Memory Distractibility in ADHD
TLDR
The data suggest that ADHD patients are disturbed by interference on an early level of perception. Expand
EEG Dynamics of a Go/Nogo Task in Children with ADHD
TLDR
Impaired ability in children with ADHD to conserve the brain oscillations phase associated with stimulus processing is suggested to serve as a target for therapeutic intervention or be used as monitoring of their effects. Expand
Evoked gamma band response in male adolescent subjects at high risk for alcoholism during a visual oddball task.
TLDR
The results indicate that the deficient early evoked gamma band response may precede the development of alcoholism and could be a potential endophenotypic marker of alcoholism risk. Expand
Introducing a novel approach of network oriented analysis of ERPs, demonstrated on adult attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The results suggest that the ADHD group was more characterized by the process of exerting attention in the early monitoring stages of the No-go signal while the controls were more characterize by theprocess of inhibiting the response to that signal. Expand
A bimodal neurophysiological study of motor control in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: a step towards core mechanisms?
TLDR
Findings indicate deviant neural implementation of motor control in children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder reflecting compensatory cognitive mechanisms as a result of a basal motor cortical inhibitory deficit (reduced activation of inhibitory intracortical interneurons). Expand

Auditory event-related potentials to a two-tone discrimination paradigm in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
It is proposed that the ADHD group, relative to controls, utilizes an additional cognitive process when processing task-relevant stimuli that is more frontally distributed and may reflect an attentional compensation mechanism in the ADHDgroup. Expand
Continuous-processing-related event-related potentials in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Visual information processing in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder was studied using event-related potentials recorded during two versions of the Continuous Performance Task (CPT), suggesting that ADHD children did not differ in their level of preparedness or their ability to mobilize resources for target identification and categorization. Expand
Gamma band response in children is related to task‐stimulus processing
TLDR
The functional characteristics of early phase-locked electroencephalographic gamma band responses in 9- to 12-year-old healthy children demonstrate that the auditory GBR is related to task-stimulus processing and imply that early target selection in children is guided by a sensory or sensorimotor preparatory set, rather than by an internal attentional focus to the side of stimulation.

Event-related potentials and performance of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: Children and normal controls in auditory and visual selective attention tasks
TLDR
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) children and normal controls (7-13 yrs old) performed an auditory and visual selective attention task and hypothesized that in ADHD children in both the auditory and the visual task, there is a deficit in the activation of the P3b process. Expand
Ontogeny of selective attention effects on event-related potentials in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and normal boys
TLDR
It is suggested that the abnormally low P36 response to attended target stimuli found in ADHD boys may be due in part to insufficient LC noradrenergic activity normally triggered by attended task-relevant or novel stimuli. Expand
Preferential neural processing of attended stimuli in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and normal boys.
TLDR
Both amplitude and latency abnormalities indicate that ADHD boys suffer from deficient preferential processing of attended stimuli, and P3b and N2 abnormalities found here suggest deficiencies in two independent cognitive processes thought to be crucial to what the authors perceive, learn, and remember. Expand
Spatial orienting and focused attention in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Performance was similar for both groups, but the early portion of P3 was lower in amplitude for invalidly cued targets in ADHD subjects and MP increased accuracy without affecting RT and shortened P3 peak latency and increased the amplitude of its early portion. Expand
Auditory event-related potentials (ERPs) and mismatch negativity (MMN) in healthy children and those with attention-deficit or tourette/tic symptoms
TLDR
It is suggested that ADHD patients process perceptual information faster from an early stage (N1), and along with the TS group, ADHD patients showed an unusually marked inhibitory phase in processing (P2), interpreted as a reduction of the normal controls on further processing. Expand
II. Separate brain potential characteristics in children with reading disability and attention deficit disorder: Color and letter relevance effects
TLDR
The unique polarity, scalp distribution, and time course of the effects of RD as compared to ADD on ERPs to relevant stimuli clearly indicated these two disorders, in part, involve different underlying brain deficits. Expand
