Pervasive Developmental Disorder With Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder-Like Symptoms and Mismatch Negativity

Psychiatry Clin Neurosci. 2008 Aug;62(4):479-81. doi: 10.1111/j.1440-1819.2008.01835.x.

Abstract

The present study examined the correlation between the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) Rating Scale-IV Japanese version (ADHD RS-IV-J) score and mismatch negativity (MMN), in 10 pervasive developmental disorder (PDD) children with ADHD-like symptoms, and examined whether MMN become the objective measure to assess the severity of ADHD-like symptoms in PDD children. Consequently, score of ADHD RS-IV-J had a positive correlative tendency with MMN latency and had a significant strong negative correlation with MMN amplitude. Therefore, MMN may become an objective measure to assess the severity of ADHD-like symptoms in PDD children.
