RUNNINGHEAD: PROBLEM 1 Is Attention Deficit Disorder a Neuropsychological Problem? Brandi Gregory Miller PSY635: Research Design and Methods Instructor: Pamela Murphy April 10,2017 PROBMEM 2 Is Attention Deficit Disorder a Neuropsychological Problem? In the article, I reviewed addressing the issues; it discusses how ADHD relates with neuropsychologically heterogeneous. There have been several studies done on this topic, that has shown deficiencies in aspects of executive function, that includes effortful attention, working memory, inhibitory control, planning or set shifting and delay aversion. These symptoms of this disorder are chronic in nature and associated with impairment in multiple areas of functioning. These symptoms can occur in academic learning, psychological, social and occupational functioning. “Comparison of Neuropsychological Performances and Behavioral Patterns of Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Severe Mood Dysregulation,” The article provides different results discussing the topic. Children that have ADHD suffer from emotional problems that can be seen early on in life. Studies have shown that different diagnosis of early-onset mania, serve ADHD and conduct disorder. The various methods used in this study were from the community and clinical longitude. The comparison of Severe mood dysregulation(SMD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD-C) combined because of the similar features. The study included 91 children, and adolescents 67 have ADHD -C, and 24 with SMD between the age of 7-18. Children that had impulsivity, hyperactivity, outburst, and of the task, were chosen for the study (Ran, P. -., & KA[+ or -]lA[+ or -]c, B. G. (2015).Parents received information about the study. There were informed consents from all the children and families that were a part of the survey. There was the individual test conducted in this review that applied to the neuropsychological. The Wisconsin card sorting test was the test used. This test is given to evaluate the frontal lobe functions, strategic planning, organized searching, environmental feedback, also detecting behavior toward PROBMEM 3 achieving a goal, were a few skills that they would be looking over. A diagnosis of SMD requires three symptoms that overlap ADHD and the criteria B systems for mania. The study is investigating the similarities and differences in neuropsychological test performance, behavioral patterns and the demographic features of children. Severe mood dysregulation is also chronic outburst with a negatively feeling of anger or sadness during the eruption (ran, P. -., & KA[+ or ]lA[+ or -]c, B. G. (2015).Results concluded that children that suffered from SMD had more severe impairments in the behavioral side even though their neuropsychological was not reported as little as of children with ADHD-C who suffer more from attention issues. The test may not have evaluated the neuropsychological functions of the children tested in an in-depth way. . PROBMEM Reference ran, P. -., & KA[+ or -]lA[+ or -]c, B. G. (2015).
