Symptoms resembling the attentional deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are frequently observed in young relatives at risk for schizophrenia (HR). We examined the frequency of the ADHD syndrome and its relationship to psychosis related psychopathology and neurobehavioral abnormalities in young HR subjects (n=29) and healthy comparison subjects (HC; n=30). Thirty-one percent of HR subjects (n=9) had ADHD as a lifetime Axis-I diagnosis (HR-A). Compared to healthy comparison subjects, the HR-A… Expand
Cognitive deficits in early-onset schizophrenia spectrum patients and their non-psychotic siblings: A comparison with ADHD
TLDR
Deficits in intellectual function, verbal memory and response initiation/inhibition were found in the SZ-SIB group indicating that these are markers of risk for schizophrenia. Expand
Attentional and neurocognitive characteristics of high-risk offspring of parents with schizophrenia compared with DSM-IV attention deficit hyperactivity disorder children
TLDR
The results suggested that the most profoundly impaired HR subjects were in fact children and adolescents who also met criteria for ADHD, and future studies with broader neuropsychological test batteries are necessary to investigate the differences and similarities between ADHD and the HR-A subgroup. Expand
Delusion-proneness displays comorbidity with traits of autistic-spectrum disorders and ADHD
TLDR
The findings support the idea that when investigating psychosis-proneness it is crucial to also take ADHD- and ASD-tendencies into account, in order to conclude that the reported results in a given study are specific to psychosis- proneness. Expand
Comorbidity of schizophrenia and adult attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
  • R. Donev, Daniel Gantert, +5 authors J. Thome
  • Psychology, Medicine
  • The world journal of biological psychiatry : the official journal of the World Federation of Societies of Biological Psychiatry
  • 2011
TLDR
An increase in suicidal behaviour of patients with both schizophrenia and ADHD compared to schizophrenia only and a significant underperformance of the patients with ADHD comorbidity compared to patients with schizophrenia only are reported. Expand
Relationship between clinical and neuropsychological characteristics in child and adolescent first degree relatives of subjects with schizophrenia
TLDR
HR children with ADD had worse clinical symptoms than did HR without ADD, although there were no differences in terms of cognitive abnormalities, and both HR groups seem to have similar deficits in neuropsychological performance. Expand
Comparison between young siblings and offspring of subjects with schizophrenia: Clinical and neuropsychological characteristics
INTRODUCTION High rates of psychopathology and worse performance in cognitive areas have been described in high risk (HR) first degree relatives of subjects with schizophrenia. The present studyExpand
Event-Related Potentials in Adolescents with Schizophrenia and Their Siblings: A Comparison with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Electroencephalogram data revealed reduced P3 amplitude in schizophrenia patients and adolescent non-psychotic siblings in an auditory oddball and a visual go/no-go task. Expand
Shared and Nonshared Symptoms in Youth-Onset Psychosis and ADHD
TLDR
Results suggested that academic, externalizing, and attention problems reflect symptoms shared between the disorders, whereas internalizing, social and thought problems reflect factors that differ between disorders. Expand
Risk of bipolar disorder and schizophrenia in relatives of people with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The findings suggest that the co-occurrence of ADHD and bipolar disorder as well as ADHD and schizophrenia is due to shared genetic factors, rather than representing completely aetiologically distinct subsyndromes. Expand
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in youth with psychosis spectrum symptoms
BACKGROUND Childhood attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is common in psychotic disorders. However, prevalence estimates vary widely and the impact of ADHD on the severity of psychoticExpand

Characteristics of patients with schizophrenia successive to childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
TLDR
It is indicated that schizophrenia subsequent to childhood ADHD has a poor prognosis as compared to schizophrenic patients with a history of childhood attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Expand
Attentional deficits in patients with schizophrenia and in their non-psychotic first-degree relatives
TLDR
The results suggest that spatial sustained attention deficit may be a vulnerability marker for schizophrenia; however, this deficit and the negative dimension of schizotypal personality disorders may be distinct traits. Expand
Impaired attention, genetics, and the pathophysiology of schizophrenia.
TLDR
It is concluded that the CPT is a cost-effective measure of the attentional deficit commonly found in affected schizophrenia subjects and those at risk for the disorder, and is therefore a potentially valuable screening device for preventive intervention programs. Expand

TLDR
It is indicated that signs of defective emotional contact and formal thought disorder are important for the psychopathology of schizophrenia and the premorbid similarity of borderline schizophrenia and schizophrenia suggests a basic relationship between these two disorders. Expand

TLDR
It was concluded that differential distractibility is likely to be a state marker of schizophrenia and psychometrically measured "psychosis proneness" and neuropsychologically detected deficits may tap two nonoverlapping sources of vulnerability to schizophrenia. Expand
Working memory in childhood-onset schizophrenia and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
Both schizophrenic and ADHD children showed deficits in verbal and spatial working memory, which suggest that in both disorders, the capacity of the sensory buffers may be diminished, and the availability and allocation of resources to the central executive may be limited. Expand

TLDR
It is strongly suggested that children with ADHD are at significantly higher risk for a specific negative course marked by antisocial and substance-related disorders. Expand
