This volume presents current and historical thinking by researchers and clinicians about a relatively recent and still controversial diagnosis. New research topics include neuroimaging studies, molecular genetics, endocrinology, and acquired brain injury. Assessment reviews include a critique of computerized assessment, neuropsychological evaluation, and new symptom rating scales. The important model of executive dysfunction is discussed, as is the overlap between assessment of ADHD and learning disabilities in college students. Other issues covered include comorbid and overlapping conditions, ADD and schizophrenia, PTSD, and substance abuse. The participants review current modalities of treatment, including medication, psychotherapy cognitive remediation and coaching, and add newer alternative treatments such as EEG biofeedback.
