ADHD status affects both bottom-up sensory processing and top-down attentional selection, impairing professional and social functioning. The objective of the study was to investigate the functional mechanisms of attention deficits in adult ADHD by examining the electrophysiological activities associated with bottom-up attentional cueing (temporal and spatial orienting of attention) and top-down control (conflict resolution). Continuous EEG was recorded in 21 adult ADHD patients (40.05±9.5 years… Expand
Event-Related-Potential (ERP) Correlates of Performance Monitoring in Adults With Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
TLDR
Results show deviations of electrophysiological measures, suggesting reduced effortful engagement of attentional and error-monitoring processes in adults with ADHD, and associations between ADHD symptom scores, event-related potential amplitudes, and poorer task performance in the ADHD group further support this notion. Expand
Top-down attention modulates auditory-evoked neural responses in neurotypical, but not ADHD, young adults
TLDR
It is demonstrated that people vary widely in how flexibly they can use attention to modulate sensory responses based on task goals, and adults with ADHD have weaker volitional control of attentional processes than their neurotypical counterparts. 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
Neurophysiological and behavioral correlates of alertness impairment and compensatory processes in ADHD evidenced by the Attention Network Test
TLDR
Assessment of the efficiency of the three Posner’s networks regarding performance and amplitude asymmetries in ANT-RPs in ADHD suggests impaired alerting and executive networks in ADHD and compensatory occipital mechanisms. Expand
Shared and Disorder-Specific Event-Related Brain Oscillatory Markers of Attentional Dysfunction in ADHD and Bipolar Disorder
TLDR
Shared impairments in women with ADHD and BD are suggested in cognitive and neural variability, preparatory activity and inability to adjust attention allocation and activation, and potentially underlie common symptoms in both disorders. Expand
Alpha modulation during working memory encoding predicts neurocognitive impairment in ADHD.
TLDR
Stimulus encoding, a component process of WM coupled to alpha modulation, is impaired in ADHD and, unlike WM maintenance or vigilance processes, has implications outside of the laboratory via a relationship with executive function, and, to a weaker extent, reading comprehension. Expand
Aberrant Modulation of Brain Oscillatory Activity and Attentional Impairment in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder.
TLDR
Modulations in the alpha band represent a robust, relatively unexplored putative biomarker of attentional impairment and a strong prospect for future studies aimed at examining underlying neural mechanisms and treatment response among individuals with ADHD. 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
Attentional networks, vigilance, and distraction as a function of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms in an adult community sample.
TLDR
While ADHD symptoms in childhood were related to alerting network and arousal vigilance, symptoms in adulthood were linked to executive vigilance, and no association between ADHD symptom severity and executive attention and distraction was found. Expand
Event-related brain-oscillatory and ex-Gaussian markers of remission and persistence of ADHD.
TLDR
Event-related theta power, theta phase consistency and tau across conditions, as well as mu in the more engaging fast-incentive condition, emerged as novel markers of ADHD remission, potentially representing compensatory mechanisms in individuals with remitted ADHD. Expand

Electrophysiological evidence for decreased top-down attentional control in adults with ADHD.
TLDR
It is suggested that adults with ADHD are less efficient at applying pro-active top-down executive control and that this may represent a core difficulty in ADHD. Expand
Functional Disconnection of Frontal Cortex and Visual Cortex in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
These findings provide neurophysiological evidence for a specific deficit in top-down attentional control in children with ADHD that is manifested as a functional disconnection between frontal and occipital cortex. Expand
EEG anomalies in adult ADHD subjects performing a working memory task
TLDR
Findings support the idea of an ADHD-related dysfunction of neural generators sub-serving attention directed to the incoming visual information and suggest ADHD cases may successfully face WM needs depending on the preservation of sustained theta ERS and prolonged increase of alpha ERS at later post-stimulus time points. Expand
Behavioral Consequences of Aberrant Alpha Lateralization in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Subjects with ADHD have a failure in sustaining hemispheric alpha lateralization when cued to the left, resulting in an attentional bias to the right visual hemifield, which might be related to the neurophysiological substrate of the disorder. Expand
Attentional processing in adults with ADHD as reflected by event-related potentials
TLDR
Neuronal activity related to early attentional mechanisms (N1 and N2) appears to be enhanced in ADHD patients, and the data suggest that ADHD adults have learned to gather their attention more strongly than healthy adults in order to achieve the same results and compensate for their impairment. Expand
Underarousal in Adult ADHD
TLDR
The observed cortical underarousal reflected in the decreased CNV supports the notion of a reduced CNV amplitude as a possible biomarker for ADHD, and the connection between cortical and peripheral arousal is not as clear as is suggested in previous research investigating both separately. Expand
Differences in Neurophysiological Markers of Inhibitory and Temporal Processing Deficits in Children and Adults with ADHD
We compared ADHD-related temporal processing and response inhibition deficits in children and adults using event-related potentials (ERPs) during cued continuous performance tasks (CPT, O-X-version,Expand
Impaired engagement of the ventral attentional pathway in ADHD
TLDR
It is suggested that the activation in the superior temporal cortices during the LPC reflects the action of ventral attention network, which constitutes the reorienting system of the human brain and is defective in ADHD. Expand
Attentional processes in children with ADHD: an event-related potential study using the attention network test.
TLDR
The results suggest that deviant attentional processing in children with ADHD is only partly related to ANT-specific effects, and are compatible with the model of a suboptimal energetic state regulation in ADHD. Expand
Relation between resting EEG to cognitive performance and clinical symptoms in adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The EEG results showed a greater reduction in alpha power from eyes-closed to eyes-open (i.e., alpha attenuation) in ADHD compared to controls, and theta/beta ratio was negatively correlated to the speed of responding to choice stimuli. Expand
