Recent years have seen a growing concern that excessive use of media such as television and games may elicit symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children. ADHD is one of the most common childhood developmental disorders, with a prevalence ranging from 5.0 to 7.1% in Western countries. Research into the potential relationship between media use and ADHD symptoms has also increased in recent years, this has not yet resulted in a clear picture. Sanne Nikkelen aims to provide a more detailed understanding of the relationship between media use and ADHD.
