Children With Different Types of ADHD Have Physiological Differences

Wed, October 12, 2005

Research by DRS. DENNIS MCFADDEN and CARYN CARLSON is featured in an Office of Public Affairs news article, Children with different types of ADHD have physiological differences, researchers at The University of Texas at Austin find. (October 12, 2005)

"Both the ears and fingers of children diagnosed with one type of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) differ from those of children diagnosed with another type of ADHD, according to researchers at The University of Texas at Austin."

“We believe that these findings support a contention that many of us have been making for years,” said Dr. Caryn Carlson, another member of the research team. “The current categories of ADHD/Inattentive and ADHD/Combined may constitute different disorders, not different subtypes of a single disorder.”
