ADHD is the most common neurological disorder in intants with a prevalence circa 5%. This illness is considered to be in an 80% originated buy genetic factors and in a 20% by environmental factors. Almost all of the literature containing MR work in this field is based in studies on subjects from European, North American or Asian origin. No studies of this kind exist on Latin American subjects (different genetic pool). In this abstract we compared resting state scans of healthy and non-healthy ADHD patients of Latin origin and compared these results to the literature findings with a special focus on the role of the posterior cingulate cortex.
