Genetic linkage of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder on chromosome 16p13, in a region implicated in autism.
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder in childhood and likely represents an extreme of normal behavior. ADHD significantly impacts learning in school-age children and leads to impaired functioning throughout the life span.
