PhD defence ceremony

Emotional dysregulation, defines as being easily angered and easily annoyed, is an important aspect of ADHD. Conflicting findings on the role of pharmacological treatment with dopaminergic agents such as methylphenidate (MPH) on the prevalence of emotional problems in ADHD stress the need for more insight on this interaction. Marco Bottel explores the occurrence of affective problems in ADHD, disentangles the effects of MPH on affective problems in ADHD and considered age effects on the neurobiological substrates of treatment with MPH.
