Synthesizing a wealth of recent neuropsychological research, this groundbreaking book focuses on the multiple pathways by which attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) develops. Joel T. Nigg marshals the best available knowledge on what is actually going on in the symptomatic child's brain and why, tracing the intersecting causal influences of genetic, neural, and environmental factors. In the process, the book confronts such enduring controversies as the validity of ADHD as a clinical construct. Specific suggestions are provided for studies that might further refine the conceptualization of the disorder, with significant potential benefits for treatment and prevention.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"The book offers as complete a picture of the likely causes of ADHD as current science permits, while rendering this very technical and complex literature into an easily understandable, no-nonsense form. Scientists working on ADHD will find this book very useful and informative. Clinicians will find a state-of-the-art summation of the causes of ADHD and a framework for explaining related issues and controversies to patients and families. " - Russell A. Barkley, Department of Psychiatry, SUNY Upstate Medical University, USA

"A refreshingly honest, brave, and comprehensive view....Nigg thoroughly discusses the controversies of the ADHD etiology, diagnosis, assessment, and treatment, as well as the medicalization of behavior in a consumeristic society looking for a fast fix....Edifying reading marked by clarity, eloquence, and intelligibility. It elucidates every aspect of ADHD and makes a great reference book for students and practitioners in psychology, neuropsychology, psychiatry, and pediatrics." - APA PsycCRITIQUES

"Clinically, this text offers a wealth of information that will assist providers in broadening their perspective regarding the origins of ADHD beyond simple nature/nurture arguments. The text is unique in that each chapter provides not only a summation and conclusion, but also identifies important factors that will impact the evaluation and treatment of individuals with ADHD....Information can easily be incorporated in discussion with parents and families." - The Clinical Neuropsychologist
