Key Brain Connection Slow To Develop In Kids With ADHD

Scientists analyzing data from a map of connections inside the human brain have gained new insights into the development of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Most recently, scientists at the University of Michigan looked into the minds of more than 750 youth and discovered that those with ADHD lag behind their peers when measuring how their brains form connections between key networks.

For instance, those with ADHD have less-developed connections between a part of the brain that controls internal-directed thought, such as daydreaming, and a part that controls external-directed tasks, such as homework, according to a study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

That lag in connection development may help explain why youth with ADHD struggle to stay focused, according to the news release.
