Gene Linked to ADHD Allows Memory Task to Be Interrupted By Brain Regions Tied to Daydreaming

Written Karen Mallet (Georgetown University Medical Center)

Neuroscientists at Georgetown University Medical Center (GUMC) say brain scans show that a gene nominally linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) leads to increased interference by brain regions associated with mind wandering during mental tasks. Presented at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, these researchers believe their findings are the first to show, through brain scanning, the differences in brain network relationships between individuals with this particular form of gene and others with a different form.

Brain Imaging Identifies Differences in Childhood Bipolar Disorder, ADHD

Written by University of Illinois at Chicago

Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago are the first to use brain imaging to examine the effects of emotion on working memory function in children with pediatric bipolar disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The study is published in the October issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry.
