New Study Regarding Improvement of ADHD Detection

A researcher from a University at Buffalo is currently studying how brian connectivity, specific communication among different brain regions, are able to fulfill the role as a bio-marker for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD is commonly diagnosed psychological disorder for school-adged children.

The article talks about how a clinical diagnosis of ADHD in a patient may be difficult to perceive since the patient's behavioral symptoms may be inconsistent during evaluations. This means that the paient can exhibit symptoms that display prominent signs of ADHD one day, but days later those same symptoms may not be present or to the same degree.
