Scientists identify genomic regions tied to ADHD
Scientists have identified 12 regions of the genome that are associated with the development of ADHD — the first time researchers have conducted a so-called genome-wide association study tied to the condition. For the study, which was published in Nature Genetics, researchers compared the genomes of more than 20,000 people with ADHD and 35,000 people without the disorder to detect the dozen regions. They also identified gene variants — some of which are known to be involved learning and hormone regulation — that may play a role in the development of the disorder.
