Advances in Understanding the Etiologies of ADHD

 



Lecture Description

This presentation reviews the major advances that have been made to understanding the multiple causes of ADHD. These include distinguishing between the acquired forms of ADHD and the developmental-genetic form. Evidence is presented to show that ADHD is largely a neuro-genetic disorder including recent findings from neuro-imaging and behavioral-genetic research. Dr. Barkley also brief discusses some of the etiologies that have been proposed for ADHD but for which there is little if any scientific basis.
