Proposal details

Title: Sex differences in adolescent ADHD, Findings from concurrent EEG and EDA
Research Area(s): ADHD and Allied Conditions
Background: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) occurs more frequently in male children and adolescents than in females, with a ratio of approximately 3 to 1.
Aims: We determined whether psychophysiological differences are associated with the expression of ADHD in males and females, using simultaneously recorded electroencephalography (EEG) and electrodermal activity (EDA).
Method: Quantitative EEG and EDA measures were acquired simultaneously and continuously (2 min) during an eyes closed resting condition for 70 ADHD adolescents (48 males, 22 females) and their age- and sex- matched controls.
