The neurobiological basis for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has not yet been fully established, although there is a growing body of evidence pointing to functional and structural abnormalities involving the basal ganglia, cerebellum, and regions of frontal grey matter. The purpose of this study was to investigate regional cerebral perfusion in adults with ADHD and age-matched control subjects, and to assess the perfusion response to stimulant treatment in the ADHD group using… CONTINUE READING
