Understanding the neural basis of ADHD

   Department of Psychology

About the Project

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is the most prevalent neurodevelopmental disorder, however the neural changes that underlie the disorder are poorly understood. Recent evidence suggests that a midbrain structure, the superior colliculus, has a central role. The project we envisage will use pre clinical in vivo electrophysiology and possibly behavioural analysis to explore role of the colliculus in ADHD, in particular the possibility that the structure may be a target for ADHD drug therapies.
