ADHD in Adults Causes
Rather than having any single cause, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) develops from both genetic and life experience risk factors. Individuals with ADHD tend to have problems developing efficient self-control skills and decision-making abilities.
Biologically, ADHD is a neurochemical and neuroanatomical disorder. People with ADHD have several chemicals (still to be determined) in the brain that are not present in the right quantities in the right places at the right times. These chemicals may work sometimes, but not always, and they are not under the individual's control. This is why people with ADHD have variable performance. Also, some nerve groups seem to be a bit out of position in the brain, causing delays or accelerations of nerve signals.
