Avatar f tn What I have read about these EEGs is that they can identify waves of brain activity that are other than normal but they do not specify what is causing the brain activity. The problem with ADHD is that other disorders cause similar brain patterns. This is the same problem sith the Quotient ADHD test that has been advertised. More about that is here: Good Luck!

Avatar n tn I think the hyperactivity and impulsivity of ADHD is another specific type of brain dysfunction, that manifests itself in a lack of self control. I think children with ADHD are not able to pull themselves away from things that they want to do as easily as others, and this is what causes them to be hyperactive, and impulsive-- its sort of a defect in the ability to do what is expected, vs what they want to do.

1393879 tn?1288725449 The link is given below - Advanced imaging techniques have detected differences in the brains of ADHD children compared to those of non-ADHD children. In some studies, brain scans reveal that the right side of the brain is smaller in ADHD children than in non-ADHD children (ordinarily the right and left sides of the brain are the same size). The right side contains three important areas: the prefrontal cortex; the caudate nucleus; and globus pallidus.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

Avatar n tn My daughter was in an ATV accident at age 10. She was taken to a local ER, diagnosed with a concussion and sent home. We were advised the normal "close monitoring and warning signs". Over the period of the next two months she experienced a complete change in behavior and disposition. She has now been diagnosed with a long list of psychiatric diagnoses (oppositional-defiant disorder, OCD, ADHD, bipolar) and that's just to name a few.
Avatar f tn To answer your first question, brainwaves can be defined as the electrical operation of the brain. When the brain operates, the nerve cells of the brain send electrical impulses, which causes quick voltage fluctuations in the brain. This occurs in various parts of the brain and there even varying frequencies that these occur in. The varying frequencies correspond with the certain mental states that occur in the brain as well.
