Abstract

Research on attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) suggests that ADHD has a substantial genetic component. Although still in their infancy, molecular genetic studies have already implicated several genes as mediating susceptibility to ADHD, Nevertheless, given that ADHD's mode of inheritance is likely to be complex, much more work is needed to fully clarify the genetic architecture of the disorder. Because large samples and collaborative efforts will likely be needed to attain this goal, researchers in the field have convened a series of meetings to discuss measures for assessing ADHD, the feasibility of using common measures across sites, ways to increase communication among researchers, and strategies for defining genetically useful phenotypes.
