Attention deficit disorder

Brain Disorder



ADHD is a brain disease in which an ongoing history of inattention and/or hyperactivity-impulsivity interferes with the functioning or growth of the brain. Instead of being distractible, children with truly inattentive ADHD will become bored easily, when their problem is more motivated than inhibitory regulation. A primary disturbance in the striatum occurs in the mixed type of ADHD when there is a lot of converging results. In truly inattentive form ADHD (ADD), the primary disturbance is shown here in the cortex. It has the potential to influence one's emotions, perceptions, and ability to acquire new skills.
