UQ neuroscientist, Dr Ross Cunnington said there appeared to be a biological difference in young boys that made them more susceptible to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, combined type (ADHD-CT).
what’s not clear to me from the little summary is whether the research proves (or even implies) that this is a gender thing: that boys have a higher physiological pre-disposition to ADHD than girls. the article doesn’t say that. and the study seems to have only had boys in its sample. so, maybe the study is ONLY saying that there seems to be a biological cause for ADHD in some boys, because they didn’t study girls.
