The role of context and inhibition in ADHD.

Zücker Björne, Petra LU and Balkenius, Christian LU (2005) In Behavioral and Brain Sciences 28(3). p.426-426
Abstract
We have shown in a computational model that a poor memory for context could result in some of the behaviors associated with ADHD, which is well in line with the dynamic developmental theory. Given the important role of context in extinction, a weaker context due to a steeper delay-of-reinforcement gradient would result in impaired inhibition.
