Diagnostic Utility of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) by Brain Activity Flow Patterns Analysis Using Evoked Response Potentials

2014-08-27 03:16:08 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research study is to study a device called an electroencephalograph (EEG) in the diagnosis of treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. People with ADHD have symptoms such as difficulty sustaining attention, organizing, and managing impulsivity. They can have trouble in school, at work, and at home. Subjects with ADHD who participate in this study will be given a once daily stimulant medication called osmotic release methylphenidate (Concerta) for 6 weeks, and have EEG testing done before and after the treatment period. Subjects will perform a computer based cognitive task during EEG testing. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved osmotic release methylphenidate (Concerta) for the treatment of ADHD in adults and children. Similar procedures, without medication, will be performed with a sample of healthy adults without ADHD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A methylphenidate derivative, DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)

A propylamine derivative and selective ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITOR that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A dextroamphetamine drug precursor that also functions as a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT and DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.
