Attention deficits in adults with hiperkinetic disorder
Languages of publication
The study concerns deficits in attention in adults with symptoms of hyperkinetic syndrome. The subject of measure was speed and accuracy of detection the stimuli physically, semantically and emotionally congruent to a given criterion and the accuracy of ignoring the stimuli which did not meet this criterion. Experiment has been conducted with 30 subjects with ADHD syndrome and 30 control subjects without any symptoms of deficits. It has been demonstrated that subjects with hyperkinetic syndrome less accurate and slower detect stimuli congruent with a criterion, and this effect is more apparent in the case of emotional stimuli. Differences has also been emerged in ignoring stimuli which not meet the given criteria. However it has been shown that differences in performance between groups fade in the next trial, what can be interpreted in the terms of efficient mechanism of skill acquisition in subjects with hyperkinetic syndrome.
