Bear in mind also that they seemed to mainly be looking at chromosomal abnormalities, which is not the same as having certain genes switched on or off. For instance, trisomies are the cause of things like Down’s Syndrome, and various other things where an individual has three sex chromosomes instead of the normal two.

So they’re not really looking at the genes which cause ADHD, they just seemed to find a correlation with ADHD and an increased likelihood of having the wrong number of chromosomes.
