Example text

6) Fuster’s critique seems especially suited to understanding these most complex cognitive functions that we describe as executive functions. He noted that the complex range of cognitive activity known as attention plays a critical role in multiple overlapping cognitive operations: Perception is part of the acquisition and retrieval of memory; memory stores information acquired by perception; language and memory depend on each other; language and logical reasoning are special forms of cognitive action; attention serves all the other cognitive functions.

He highlighted common neurobiological factors underlying various disorders and noted that current definitions of disorders are “regions with fuzzy boundaries in continuous multivariate space” (p. 31). He suggested that various disorders are likely to be distinguished more by Developmental Complexities of Attentional Disorders variable weighting of different risk factors, and by different epigenetic and developmental interactions that result from that weighting, than by a distinct set of risk factors for each disorder.

Under the cross-sectional view, depression is rarely comorbid with ADHD if the sample includes only prepubescent children, yet the overlap of ADHD and depression is very substantial if assessment is done in adolescence or adulthood. Some psychiatric disorders emerge during childhood and may worsen or improve as the child grows older. Other psychiatric disorders do not usually appear during childhood; they are typically characterized by an onset late in adolescence or sometime in adulthood. Rutter and colleagues (2006) have described the continuities and discontinuities in psychopathology between childhood and adult life.
