Clinical Neuropharmacology: January-February 2001 - Volume 24 - Issue 1 - p 2-10 Buy Abstract Neuroimaging studies have been conducted with increasing frequency in recent years in attempts to identify structural and functional abnormalities in the brains of persons with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. Although the results of these studies are frequently cited in support of a biologic etiology for this disorder, inconsistencies among studies raise questions about the reliability of the findings. The present review shows that no specific abnormality in brain structure or function has been convincingly demonstrated by neuroimaging studies. Implications regarding stimulant treatment for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder are discussed. © 2001 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.
