The precise neurobiological mechanisms underlying ADHD are poorly understood and may differ between individuals. There is a need to identify subtypes of ADHD with similar pathophysiology, and to identify biological markers that allow for a more personalised treatment approach. This project will use psychophysiological measures (e.g. electroencephalogram, skin conductance, heart rate) to compare children and adolescents who have responded well to a stimulant (methylphenidate) or a non-stimulant (atomoxetine) medication in a clinical trial. With this project we aim to improve the understanding of the neurobiological mechanisms underlying ADHD and to identify non-invasive psychophysiological markers for guiding individualised treatment decisions.
