BACKGROUND We sought to assess the relationship between response inhibition and working memory in adult patients with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and neurosurgical patients with frontal lobe damage. METHODS The stop-signal reaction time (SSRT) test and a spatial working memory (SWM) task were administered to 20 adult patients with ADHD and a group of matched controls. The same tasks were administered to 21 patients with lesions to right frontal cortex and 19 patients with… Expand
Working Memory and Response Inhibition as One Integral Phenotype of Adult ADHD? A Behavioral and Imaging Correlational Investigation
TLDR
The authors’ findings do not support the hypothesis of WM and RI representing one integral phenotype of ADHD mediated by the prefrontal cortex. Expand
No Behavioral or ERP Evidence for a Developmental Lag in Visual Working Memory Capacity or Filtering in Adolescents and Adults with ADHD
TLDR
Overall, the development of filtering efficiency and VSWM storage capacity in adolescents with ADHD was not different from that in typically developing peers. Expand
Emotion processing influences working memory circuits in pediatric bipolar disorder and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Commonalities across PBD and ADHD patients, relative to the HC individuals, entailed cortico-subcortical activity that was reduced under negative emotional challenge and increased under positive emotional challenge. Expand
Regional brain activation changes and abnormal functional connectivity of the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex during working memory processing in adults with attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Both regional brain activation deficits and functional connectivity changes of the VLPFC and the cerebellum as well as functional connectivity abnormalities of the anterior cingulate and the parietal cortex in ADHD adults during WM processing are suggested. Expand
Age-related grey matter volume correlates of response inhibition and shifting in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The evidence supports delayed brain maturation in ADHD and implies that some features of ADHD improve with age, as well as determining age-related changes in reaction times and brain volumes. Expand
Attention Networks in ADHD Adults after Working Memory Training with a Dual n-Back Task
TLDR
The dimensional analysis showed that after baseline training, the lesser the severity of the hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, the larger the improvement of reaction times on trials with high executive control/conflict demand, irrespective of the participants’ group. Expand
Working memory span and ADHD symptoms
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that has been linked to impairments in working memory, both in theory and empirically. The primary aim was toExpand
The Specificity and Neural Basis of Impaired Inhibitory Control
Impaired inhibition is a deficit of several psychopathological disorders, particularly attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In the first study, a meta-analysis was conducted to determineExpand
Competing Core Processes in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD): Do Working Memory Deficiencies Underlie Behavioral Inhibition Deficits?
TLDR
Competing predictions of the working memory and behavioral inhibition models of ADHD suggested that working memory deficits may underlie impaired stop-signal task performance in children with ADHD. Expand
Prefrontal oxygenation during working memory in ADHD.
TLDR
The fist multi-channel functional near-infrared spectroscopy study of children with ADHD found no indication for an altered prefrontal processing during OWM and SWM tasks in ADHD children compared to controls. Expand

Implication of right frontostriatal circuitry in response inhibition and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The data suggest a role of the right prefrontal cortex in suppressing responses to salient, but otherwise irrelevant events while the basal ganglia appear to be involved in executing these behavioral responses. Expand
Methylphenidate improves response inhibition in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Adult ADHD patients had a response inhibition profile similar to that produced by lesions to the right inferior frontal cortex, which was remedied by stimulant medication. Expand
Functional neuroanatomy of working memory in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The findings suggest that the cerebellum is involved in the pathophysiology of at least some cognitive deficits associated with ADHD and emphasize the need for additional research aimed at elucidating the role of the Cerebellum in ADHD symptomatology. Expand
Effect of methylphenidate on executive functioning in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Normalization of behavior but not related brain activity
TLDR
Methylphenidate does not normalize task-related activity in ADHD, andtask-related rCBF decreases in the PFC may be due to improved filtering out of task-irrelevant stimuli by way of MPH-mediated dopamine release in thePFC. Expand
The Cognitive Neuroscience of Response Inhibition: Relevance for Genetic Research in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Evidence in favor of response inhibition as an endophenotype for ADHD research is reviewed, showing that response inhibition--operationalized by Go/NoGo or Stop-signal tasks--requires the prefrontal cortex, in particular the right inferior frontal cortex (IFC); that patients with ADHD have significant response inhibition deficits and show altered functional activation and gray matter volumes in right IFC.

Neuropsychological Assessment of Response Inhibition in Adults With ADHD
Several theoretical models suggest that the core deficit of ADHD is a deficiency in response inhibition. While neuropsychological deficits in response inhibition are well documented in ADHD children,Expand
Disentangling deficits in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
Disturbed attentional processing of the stop signal contributed to impaired stopping in adults with ADHD, and this finding may have implications for treatment. Expand
Are there cognitive subtypes in adult attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder?
TLDR
The preliminary data suggest that the different cognitive weaknesses of ADD subtypes may be linked to dysregulation of separate frontal brain regions and/or neurotransmitter systems. Expand
Characteristic neurocognitive profile associated with adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The demonstration of neuropsychological dysfunction in the adult ADHD cohort provides some support for the validity of this diagnosis in adulthood and there is broad consistency between the cognitive profile revealed in the current investigation and that previously demonstrated in a study of medication-naïve ADHD children.

Adult attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: Neuropsychological correlates and clinical presentation
TLDR
The neuropsychological test performance of adult ADHD patients to the neurocognitive profiles of control subjects recruited from the general population was compared and subtyping ADHD patients revealed important group differences. Expand
