White matter microstructure in children and adolescents with ADHD

Basal ganglia structure in Tourette's disorder and/or attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder

Tourette's disorder and attention‐deficit/hyperactivity disorder often co‐occur and have both been associated with structural variation of the basal ganglia. However, findings are inconsistent and

Title Distinct effects of childhood ADHD and cannabis use on brain functional architecture in young adults Permalink

TLDR
A small number of patients with mild to severe Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and chronic cannabis use have been diagnosed with brain structural abnormalities, although little is known about the effects of both use.

Neurobiological support to the diagnosis of ADHD in stimulant‐naïve adults: pattern recognition analyses of MRI data

TLDR
This work searches for a neuroanatomical signature associated with ADHD spectrum symptoms in adults by applying machine learning‐based pattern classification methods to structural MRI and diffusion tensor imaging data obtained from stimulant‐naïve adults with childhood‐onset ADHD and healthy controls.

Managing ADHD in children and young people: New insights

Despite intensive research, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) remains controversial in terms of both its diagnosis and mamagement. This review briefly explores some trends in research

Alterations in ThoseWith Attention-Deficit / Hyperactivity Disorder and Their Unaffected Siblings

TLDR
It remains unclear whether neuroanatomical alterations linked to ADHD are also present in the unaffected siblings of those with ADHD.

Disorder‐Specific Alteration in White Matter Structural Property in Adults With Autism Spectrum Disorder Relative to Adults With ADHD and Adult Controls

TLDR
This study aims to examine the disorder‐specific alterations in white matter (WM) structural property to examine whether these shared phenotypes are based on common or different underlying neuropathologies.

hyperactivity disorder relative to autism spectrum disorder

TLDR
This study compared the two neurodevelopmental disorders to investigate shared and disorder-specific structural brain abnormalities in particular in frontal and cerebellar regions.

Cortical brain structure and sexual orientation in adult females with bipolar disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder

Nonheterosexual individuals have higher risk of psychiatric morbidity. Together with growing evidence for sexual orientation‐related brain differences, this raises the concern that sexual orientation

Neuroanatomical correlates of attention‐deficit–hyperactivity disorder accounting for comorbid oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder

Aim:  An increasing number of neuroimaging studies have been conducted to uncover the pathophysiology of attention‐deficit–hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The findings are inconsistent, however, at

Functional magnetic resonance imaging of methylphenidate and placebo in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder during the multi-source interference task.

TLDR
Methylphenidate OROS increased daMCC activation during the MSIT and may act, in part, by normalizing daMcc hypofunction in ADHD.

Neuroanatomical abnormalities in adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.

TLDR
Data from a subgroup of the ADHD youths suggest that increasing left caudate volume is associated with decreasing functional activation of this region, and the present results may reflect neurodevelopmental changes specific to late adolescence in familial ADHD.

Amygdala reduction in patients with ADHD compared with major depression and healthy volunteers

TLDR
Amygdala reduction in patients with ADHD compared with major depression and healthy volunteers is reduced and the risk of major depression is reduced.

Ontario Child Health Study: prevalence of attention deficit disorder with hyperactivity.

TLDR
There were no significant differences in the prevalence of ADDH by age or urban-rural status, but the disorder was significantly more common in boys than in girls.

Towards further understanding of the co-morbidity between attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and bipolar disorder: a MRI study of brain volumes

TLDR
The hypothesis that ADHD and BPD independently contribute to volumetric alterations of selective and distinct brain structures in the co-morbid state of ADHD plus BPD is supported.
