Virtual Issue: Genetics of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a childhood onset disorder of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity which frequently persists into adulthood. Because of its high heritability, molecular genetic studies have sought to discover genes that increase susceptibility to the disorder. This virtual issue highlights several studies that have sought to clarify the functional consequences of genetic variants implicated in ADHD. It also provides a discussion of misunderstandings of the genetics and neurobiology of ADHD that have appeared in the scientific literature. Please contact authors directly for reprints or for additional information described within the articles appearing in this issue. These virtual issue articles are freely available online.
