What is the study about?
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and mild cognitive impairment (MCI) often present with similar cognitive complaints, such as difficulties with controlling attention and impulses. As a result, many older adults with ADHD can be misdiagnosed as having MCI rather than ADHD. This study will compare participants with MCI and ADHD to help improve our ability to distinguish between the two conditions in older adults.
Eligibility- Who can participate?
- Be 50-85 years of age
- Have a diagnosis of MCI or ADHD, or be a healthy volunteer
- 4-hour visits once a year over 3 years
- Visits will include cognitive testing and questionnaires
