First Genes Linked To ADHD Discovered

A long way to go, but a good start.

ADHD is thought to affect about 5 percent of children and 2.5 percent of adults.

A study of 55,000 people has found the first regions of the genome linked to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). 

The international study, published in Nature Genetics, identified 12 regions of the genome implicated in ADHD. 

However, the regions identified in the study account for less than one percent of the genetic contribution to ADHD. In total, genetic factors are thought to account for up to 80 percent of disease risk. 

The research supports the idea that ADHD is an 'extreme expression' of heritable traits found throughout the population.
