Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a commonly observed neurobehavioral disorders of childhood, but its pathogenic mechanism is still unclear. The graph theory deals with the whole brain as a complex network that owns its unique topological properties. It supplies a novel insight into the investigating of human brain network to find how ADHD affect the brain function. The purpose of this study was to investigate the topological properties of complex network in ADHD, and find the disturbed connectivity regions of ADHD patients brain using graph theory.
