Contributors from the US and Germany present the results of long-term studies on attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults. The book begins with a synopsis of the features of adult ADHD and an overview of formal and molecular genetics studies. Three chapters are devoted to neurophysiological, morphological, and functional imaging studies in adult ADHD. Subsequent chapters look at clinical aspects of ADHD in adults, including diagnostic issues, comorbidity, and social dysfunction. The last two chapters cover therapeutic approaches, focusing on group therapy and options for pharmacological treatment. The book will be of interest to psychiatrists, neurologists, geneticists, physicians, and therapists working with ADHD patients. The book includes tables and charts, and a few b&w photos of key figures. Retz is affiliated with Saarland University Hospital and Frankfurt University Hospital, Germany.
