Still believed that the major “defect in moral control” so typical of these cases was relatively chronic.While it could arise from an acquired brain defect secondary to an acute brain disease, and might remit on recovery from the disease, in most cases it was chronic.
Later papers would further confirm this familial association of hyperactivity in which the biological parents of such children were also abnormal in their attention, impulse control, and activity levels (Alberts-Corush, Firestone, & Goodman, 1986).
My own longitudinal studies find as much as 1/7th to 1/3rd of all childhood cases of ADHD appear to have recovered by their late 20s (Barkley, Murphy,& Fischer, 2008) and perhaps by as much as half by their 40s (Klein et al., 2012).
Noteworthy as well was that Crichton felt that problems with attention were associated with many other mental and physical disorders, and that there are different components involved in attention, making it multidimensional rather than unitary as modern researchers now believe (Mirsky, 1996).
Crichton espoused the view that inborn forms of inattention would diminish with age.
We now believe this to be so at least for the type of inattention related to ADHD and in some though not all cases.
The scientific literature on ADHD grows daily, and new information may emerge that supersedes these course materials.
This course will equip clinicians to have a basic understanding of the history and diagnosis of ADHD and associated impairments in major life activities.At that time, the disorder was known as Minimal Brain Damage or Dysfunction (MBD) and its likely existence in adults arose from three sources.The first of these was the publication of several early follow-up studies demonstrating the persistence of symptoms of hyperactivity/MBD into adulthood in many cases (Mendelson, Johnson, & Stewart, 1971; Menkes, Rowe, & Menkes, 1967).I think this notion parallels modern notions of arousal and alertness because Crichton felt that attention could become fatigued or be affected by inadequate mental energy.Such mental energy could be adversely affected by diseases or other injuries to the brain, but also by either under-use or excessive use of one’s faculty of attention.While popular interest in the possibility that adults can have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) most likely originated with the bestseller, published in 1994 by psychiatrists Edward Hallowell and John Ratey, clinical and scientific papers acknowledging the existence of an adult version of this disorder date back at least 50 years and possibly even two centuries ago.
