For children with attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or tic disorder (TD), we recently reported deficient inhibitory mechanisms within the motor system by using transcranial magnetic stimulation. These deficits--stated as reduced intracortical inhibition in ADHD and shortened cortical silent period in TD--could be seen as neurophysiological correlates of motor hyperactivity and tics, respectively. To investigate neurophysiological aspects of comorbidity, we measured motor system… CONTINUE READING
