Research subject

The overall objective of my research team’s work on ADHD is to understand how genes and environments influence ADHD across the life span, to map developmental consequences of ADHD and to identify the benefits and risks associated with ADHD treatment interventions. In our research, we use large ADHD cohorts identified from national health registers, the Swedish twin register and clinical cohorts. These datasets contains valid diagnoses of ADHD, prospective measures of environmental risks, high throughput genotyping, longitudinal information on prescribed ADHD medications and assessments of serious medical (cardiovascular, neurological, and psychiatric problems) and functional outcomes.
