Background: Gray and white matter volume deficits have been reported in many structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) studies of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD); however, there is a paucity of structural MRI studies of adults with ADHD. This study used voxel based morphometry and applied an a priori region of interest approach based on our previous work, as well as from well-developed neuroanatomical theories of ADHD. Methods: Seventy-four adults with DSM-IV ADHD and 54 healthy control subjects comparable on age, sex, race, handedness, IQ, reading achievement, frequency of learning disabilities, and whole brain volume had an MRI on a 1.5T Siemens scanner. A priori region of interest hypotheses focused on reduced volumes in ADHD in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex, anterior cingulate cortex, caudate, putamen, inferior parietal lobule, and cerebellum. Analyses were carried out by FSL-VBM 1.1. Results: Relative to control subjects, ADHD adults had significantly smaller gray matter volumes in parts of six of these regions at p Յ .01, whereas parts of the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and inferior parietal lobule were significantly larger in ADHD at this threshold. However, a number of other regions were smaller and larger in ADHD (especially fronto-orbital cortex) at this threshold. Only the caudate remained significantly smaller at the family-wise error rate. Conclusions: Adults with ADHD have subtle volume reductions in the caudate and possibly other brain regions involved in attention and executive control supporting frontostriatal models of ADHD. Modest group brain volume differences are discussed in the context of the nature of the samples studied and voxel based morphometry methodology. Key Words: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, caudate, cerebellum, prefrontal cortex, structural MRI, voxel based morphometry ical features, comorbidities (6,7), neuropsychological dysfunctions (8 –10), and functional impairment with ADHD children (1,11–15). The persistence of ADHD into adulthood in two thirds of childhood cases (16) supports the hypothesis that structural brain abnormalities present in childhood will persist to adulthood (17,18). Little is known about the neuroanatomy of adult ADHD (19,20). Whereas there are more than two dozen quantitative reports of structural neuroimaging using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in ADHD children from more than a dozen research groups (reviewed in [17]) and summarized in two meta-analyses (21,22), there are only a few structural imaging studies of adults with ADHD: two articles from one research group (23,24), an article by another group (25), and a number of articles from our group (18,26 –28). Hesslinger et al. (23) and Perlov et al. (24) reported a significant reduction of the left fronto-orbital cortex (FOC) (23) in a small sample, and after specifically testing for hippocampus and amygdala volume differences in a subsequent analysis with a larger sample, they reported a null finding compared with control subjects (24), similar to our negative results (18). Frodl et al. (25) reported no significant differences in hippocampus but found a bilateral reduction in amygdala compared with healthy control subjects. We found significant gray matter volume reductions in ADHD in dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC), and the cerebellum (18,28) compared with healthy control subjects. We also found significant cortical thinning in ADHD involving the inferior parietal lobule (IPL), DLPFC, and ACC in the sample (26) used in the Seidman et al. (18) volumetric study. We evaluated the structural connectivity network underlying attention and executive functions (EFs), demonstrating white matter abnormalities measured by fractional anisotropy in the cingulum bundle and the superior longitudinal fasciculus II in a completely independent sample of ADHD adults (27). These findings largely emphasize cortical circuits (DLPFC, ACC, and IPL) and subcortical circuits with BIOL PSYCHIATRY 2011;69:857– 866 © 2011 Society of Biological Psychiatry


ttention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adults has gradually become recognized as a valid and reliable disorder, sharing many features with the childhood syndrome (1). A substantial percentage of individuals diagnosed with ADHD in youth have symptoms persisting into adulthood (2,3) and epidemiologic data indicate that approximately 4% of adults in the United States suffer from ADHD (4,5). Adults with ADHD share similar clin-

We conducted direct interviews with all subjects. with childhood onset and persistence into adulthood. many investigators have conceptualized the neurobiology of ADHD as involving structural and functional brain abnormalities in frontal-striatal circuitry that governs attention and EFs (37– 42).18. Our empirical work has been guided by a conceptual model of the core neurocognitive deficits in ADHD. Middleton and Strick (51) demonstrated cerebellarcortical connections that provide an anatomical substrate for a possible cerebellar-prefrontal dysfunction in ADHD (17. Many researchers studying the cerebellum in ADHD children have observed structural abnormalities. and we have utilized this model to guide our work. One of the most replicated alterations in ADHD in childhood is a significantly smaller volume in the caudate (43– 45) and a smaller putamen-pallidum region. somatotopically distributed circuits essential for EFs. and all participants received an honorarium for participating. they are appropriate for directional hypothesis testing. cerebellar gray matter is hypothesized to be an important part of the brain affected in ADHD.
