Cross-generational transmission from drug abuse in parents to attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in children.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) predisposes to drug abuse (DA) and twin studies suggest shared genetic effects. We here seek to determine, using adoption and adoption-like samples, the magnitude of the cross-generational transmission from DA in parents to ADHD in their children and clarify the degree to which this arises from genetic v. rearing effects.
