Abstract

EEG Morphology and Spectral Analysis in Attention Deficit/ Hyperactivity Disorder. Effect of Methylphenidate Treatment

Introduction: Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed disorder in childhood. It has been described structural and functional abnormalities in the brain of these patients. However, the etiology of this disorder is still unknown. The aim of this study is to investigate cortical activity alterations in patients with attention Deficit Hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), that could help diagnose this pathology and monitor electrophysiological prognosis after medical treatment in order to improve the management of this disorder.
