Abstract watch: Highlighting the various co-morbidities of ADHD
In this abstract watch, we look at new research by Hayes et al, which focuses specifically on the neural markers for impulsivity and the role that ?-aminobutyric acid (GABA) may play in this. The second abstract explores the progression and effect of ADHD through middle and old age, with some surprising results. Shaw et al provide an exploration of emotional dysregulation in ADHD. This is topical given the debate on bipolar disorder co-morbidity with ADHD, and further insight into the nature of ADHD-specific emotional dysregulation is always helpful. We finish with an article designed for those who support ADHD adolescents through college and university: utilising cognitive behavioural therapy for ADHD adolescents appeared to have good outcomes.
