Brain abnormalities may persist into young adulthood among adolescents with ADHD

September 1, 2015

Young adults diagnosed with ADHD in adolescence exhibited structural and functional deficits associated with abnormal working memory function, suggesting changes in the brain may persist into adulthood despite clinical improvement.

“[ADHD] was initially thought to abate in adolescence but increasing evidence indicates that ADHD frequently persists through to adulthood. Of those diagnosed during childhood, about 30–60% show symptoms during adulthood. It is because of its associated morbidity and disability across the lifespan that ADHD has come to be a major clinical and public health concern,” Andres Roman‑Urrestarazu, PhD, of the University of Cambridge, and colleagues wrote.
