Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder with impairments across the lifespan. The persistence of ADHD is associated with considerable liability to neuropsychiatric co-morbidity such as depression, anxiety and substance use disorder. The substantial heritability of ADHD is well documented and recent genome-wide analyses for risk genes revealed synaptic adhesion molecules (e.g. latrophilin-3, LPHN3; fibronectin leucine-rich repeat transmembrane… Expand
Impact of the ADHD-susceptibility gene CDH13 on development and function of brain networks
TLDR
An integrative hypothesis of the mechanisms in which Cadherin-13 plays a central role in the regulation of brain network development, plasticity and function is developed, with emerging concepts about alterations in Cadher in-13 signaling contributing to the pathophysiology of neurodevelopmental disorders. Expand
Glutamatergic candidate genes in autism spectrum disorder: an overview
TLDR
It is concluded that glutamatergic genetic risk factors for ASD show a complex pattern and further studies are needed to fully understand its mechanisms, before translation of findings into clinical applications and individualized treatment approaches will be possible. Expand
Why is methylphenidate effective in ADHD
TLDR
The increment of glycine levels improves NMDAR functions, resulting in improvement of ADHD, according to the following hypothesis. Expand
Annual research review: The (epi)genetics of neurodevelopmental disorders in the era of whole-genome sequencing--unveiling the dark matter.
TLDR
A backbone continuum concept of NDDs is discussed by summarizing pertinent findings in genetics and epigenetics and an appraisal of the genetic overlap versus differences is provided, with a focus on genome-wide screening approaches for (epi)genetic variation. Expand
The effects of GRIN2B and DRD4 gene variants on local functional connectivity in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Results suggest that alterations in the glutamate and dopamine system in ADHD may contribute to abnormalities in local functional connectivity and its dynamic repertoire in the superior parietal area, and these abnormalities would be related to dysfunction in sustained and divided attention. Expand
Early-life stress impairs developmental programming in Cadherin 13 (CDH13)-deficient mice

TLDR
The behavioural findings indicate a role of CDH13 in the programming of and adaptation to early‐life stress and transcriptomic data support the view ofCDH13 as a neuroprotective factor as well as a mediator in cell‐cell interactions, with an impact on synaptic plasticity. Expand
MAP1B and NOS1 genes are associated with working memory in youths with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The findings suggest possible roles of NOS1 and MAP1B genes in WM performance in ADHD patients, replicating previous results with Nos1 gene in this cognitive domain in ADHD children. Expand
Glutamatergic copy number variants and their role in attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
A role for glutamate in ADHD is suggested as CNVs in the glutamatergic genes investigated herein were associated with cognitive and clinical characteristics of ADHD individuals. Expand
Hippocampal overexpression of Nos1ap promotes endophenotypes related to mental disorders
TLDR
The data provide a mechanistic explanation for a highly selective and specific contribution of hippocampal NOS1AP and its interaction with the glutamatergic postsynaptic density to cross-disorder pathophysiology and allude to therapeutic relevance due to the druggability of this molecule. Expand
Sarcosine treatment for oppositional defiant disorder symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder children
TLDR
Treatment of ADHD by sarcosine was well tolerated and could possibly be a novel agent for managing ODD symptoms in the context of ADHD, however, future larger-scale studies are warranted to optimize its dosage. Expand

The ADHD-susceptibility gene lphn3.1 modulates dopaminergic neuron formation and locomotor activity during zebrafish development
TLDR
Together, the results implicate decreased Lphn3 activity in eliciting ADHD-like behavior, and demonstrate its correlated contribution to the development of the brain dopaminergic circuitry. Expand
Association of the glutamate receptor subunit gene GRIN2B with attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The data suggest an association between variations in the GRIN2B subunit gene and ADHD as measured categorically or as a quantitatively distributed trait. Expand
Tryptophan hydroxylase-2 (TPH2) in disorders of cognitive control and emotion regulation: A perspective
TLDR
The genetic and neurobiological evidence is appraised to illustrate the critical role of TPH2 in central 5-HT system function and in the pathophysiology of a wide spectrum of disorders of cognitive control and emotion regulation, ranging from depression to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Expand
Shank3 mutant mice display autistic-like behaviours and striatal dysfunction
TLDR
It is shown that mice with Shank3 gene deletions exhibit self-injurious repetitive grooming and deficits in social interaction and a critical role for SHANK3 in the normal development of neuronal connectivity is demonstrated. Expand
The genomic organisation of the metabotropic glutamate receptor subtype 5 gene, and its association with schizophrenia
TLDR
The intron/exon structure of GRM5 was determined and a novel intragenic microsatellite was identified, suggestive of involvement of the GRM 5 gene in schizophrenia in this population of schizophrenics. Expand
Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Phenotype in Mice Lacking the Cyclin-Dependent Kinase 5 Cofactor p35
TLDR
The findings suggest that dysregulation of Cdk5/p35 activity during development may contribute to ADHD pathology, as indicated by the behavioral phenotype, improperly established mesolimbic circuitry, and aberrations in striatal and PFC catecholaminergic signaling in p35 knockout mice. Expand
A lifetime of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder: diagnostic challenges, treatment and neurobiological mechanisms
TLDR
Converging evidence from clinical and genetic studies are presented arguing for a remarkable perseverance of ADHD-related symptomatology, taking into account the disorder’s variable and changing phenotype moderated by a high rate of comorbidity throughout the lifecycle. Expand
Group 1 mGluR-Dependent Synaptic Long-Term Depression: Mechanisms and Implications for Circuitry and Disease
