OK, so when I read this report, I was frustrated by it’s lack of detail. I would love to get my hands on the original study.

It seems like they found that dopamine receptors were a (not the) culprit. That explains why raising the dopamine levels in the brain is a successful treatment. It makes dopamine more readily available for uptake. There is nothing in the article about the differences in the brain’s construction and they only hint that EEG are different for ADD brains. Our brains are different. See: http://psychcentral.com/news/2008/11/18/structure-of-brain-may-influence-adhd/3362.html

There is a lot of work being done by researchers, but what I find kind of disturbing, is they look at “Childhood” ADD or “Adult” ADD and they are Missing a fundamental concept… Childhood ADD and Adult ADD are the SAME.

I would REALLY like to hear from Dr J and his colleagues to post a list of studies and new knowledge on ADD. Heck! Need a test subject? Sign me up! I am so there!
