It has frequently been reported that in so-called oddball tasks, children with attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADDH) show small P3 peaks of the event-related potential (ERP) in response to "targets" (task-relevant deviant stimuli) than normal children. It is not clear, however, whether this smaller P3 is due to abnormal processing of infrequent stimuli per se and/or of task-relevant stimuli and whether it is preceded by abnormalities in earlier peaks, especially those thought to… CONTINUE READING
