'Brain chemical link' to ADHD


Due to the small sample size and the fact that these data are all based on an adult sample, they should not be generalized to a child population. We have a problem of antecedence; do they have fewer dopamine receptors because of ADHD? Or do they have fewer because of something else that causes this condition? Based on the small sample size, we cannot even tell that dopamine problems could be extrapolated to the ADHD population in general. Thus, this research, while not new, is fairly worthless. It's a wonder rubbish like this get published.
