An EEG Study of Children With and Without ADHD Symptoms: Between-Group Differences and Associations With Sluggish Cognitive Tempo Symptoms
TLDR
Results support the conclusion that ADHD symptoms are strongly associated with theta/beta ratio in frontal and frontocentral regions.
Do sluggish cognitive tempo symptoms improve with school-based ADHD interventions? Outcomes and predictors of change.
TLDR
Although not specifically designed to decrease SCT symptoms, the ADHD interventions evaluated in this study resulted in significant improvements in parent-reported SCT with small to moderate effect sizes.
Sluggish cognitive tempo and processing speed in adolescents with ADHD: do findings vary based on informant and task?
TLDR
Preliminary support is provided for the hypothesis that SCT may be more clearly associated with processing speed task performance as motor demands increase and a potential explanation for the mixed literature on SCT is provided by demonstrating that the presence and magnitude of associations vary by informant and task.
Diffusion tensor imaging findings in children with sluggish cognitive tempo comorbid Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
It is suggested that including an assessment for SCT in the neuropsychological and neuroimaging studies of ADHD may provide more consistent results, and neurobiological differences in ADHD cases are still relatively unexplored.
Differential impact of trait sluggish cognitive tempo and ADHD inattention in early childhood on adolescent functioning
TLDR
Findings of this study - from the longest prospective sample to date - provide the clearest evidence yet that SCT and ADHD-IN often differ when it comes to the functional outcomes they predict.
Sluggish cognitive tempo is associated with autistic traits and anxiety disorder symptoms in children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
SCT is associated with ATs and anxiety disorders, and children with ADHD and SCT symptoms should be screened for such conditions.
DRD4 genotyping may differentiate symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder and sluggish cognitive tempo
TLDR
This study investigated if the prevalence of two variable-number tandem repeats located within the 3′-untranslated region of the DAT1 gene and in exon 3 of the dopamine D4 receptor (DRD4) gene differ among four groups.
Sluggish cognitive tempo in children and adolescents with higher functioning autism spectrum disorders: Social impairments and internalizing symptoms.
TLDR
It is suggested that children with higher functioning ASD and high or medium levels of SCT symptoms could be at higher risk for psychosocial impairments than children withHigher functioning ASD with low levels ofSCT symptoms.

TLDR
Although the 2 groups did not differ on level of attention or learning problems, high-SCT ADHD/IA children were rated by teachers as showing less externalizing behavior and higher levels of unhappiness, anxiety/depression, withdrawn behavior, and social dysfunction, support a reconsideration of SCT symptoms as a component of diagnostic criteria for a category of nonhyperactive attention deficit disorder.
Working Memory in Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is Characterized by a Lack of Specialization of Brain Function
TLDR
In conclusion, children with ADHD demonstrated reduced working memory task specific brain activation in comparison to their peers, suggesting inefficiency in functional recruitment by individuals with ADHD represented by a poor match between task demands and appropriate levels of brain activity.

TLDR
It is concluded that SCT may be a separate disorder from ADHD yet with comorbidity occurring in approximately half of all cases of each, and contributed unique variance to EF deficits and psychosocial impairment apart from ADHD inattention and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms.
The Relationship Between Sluggish Cognitive Tempo, Subtypes of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, and Anxiety Disorders
TLDR
SCT correlated significantly with inattentiveness, regardless of the subtype of ADHD, and correlated with variability in spatial memory; in contrast, there was no correlation between SCT and reaction time.
Dimensions and Correlates of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and Sluggish Cognitive Tempo
TLDR
Sluggish Cognitive Tempo symptoms were greatest in youth with ADHD Inattentive type, but were also found in non-ADHD clinical groups, and its clinical utility is still unclear.
Validity of the Sluggish Cognitive Tempo, Inattention, and Hyperactivity Symptom Dimensions: Neuropsychological and Psychosocial Correlates
TLDR
The distinct factors of hyperactivity-impulsivity and SCT had unique associations with impairing comorbidities and are roughly equivalent in predicting external correlates of ADHD-related impairment.
An FMRI auditory oddball study of combined-subtype attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
The results indicate that ADHD pathophysiology impairs brain systems that are important for allocating attention and using cognitive representations to guide cognition and behavior and is an important factor to consider in neurobiological theories of ADHD.
