Abstract

While specific neuropsychological tests can identify key features of ADHD, their scope is limited to measuring symptoms of ADHD; they do not identify groups of heterogeneous symptoms necessary to make a categorical DSM diagnosis. Tests of response inhibition as employed in continuous performance tests and/or go/no-go paradigms definitely identify right hemisphere frontal–striatal abnormalities in ADHD.
