Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) research at Icahn School of Medicine encompasses clinical and genetic studies as well as experimental therapeutics. Our studies include:
- Analysis of differences in the etiology, neuropsychological functioning, neurophysiology, and the treatment response of children with subtypes of ADHD
- Efficacy studies of a manualized cognitive-behavioral treatment approach to enhance time-management, organizational, and planning skills in adults with ADHD
- Clinical pharmacologic trials in ADHD
- Investigation into the role of the dopamine system (dopamine transporter; D2 receptors) in ADHD using PET radioligand methodology
- Examination of brain activation in individuals with ADHD in response to a cognitive task challenge.
In addition, Mount Sinai is collaborating on the genetics of ADHD and is a member of the ADHD Research Network.
