As many as 50, 100, or more gene variations, or alleles, may contribute to ADHD by influencing the way the brain creates and responds to important chemical messengers associated with attention and motivation. We’ll tell you more about these chemicals, known as neurotransmitters, later on, when we discuss what’s going on in the brains of people with ADHD. But simply consider this landmark finding: scientists relatively recently discovered that a gene variation known as DRD4-7, commonly found in people diagnosed with ADHD, contributes to a lower rate of brain receptors for a key neurotransmitter called dopamine.
It might be thought of as the brain’s elixir of excitement, awakening interest by drawing us to novelty (good or bad), such as a new sort of berry on a tree, a snake in the grass, or a check in the mail. Dopamine is the core neurotransmitter in only a few of the brain’s major pathways, but these are directly relevant to motivation, effort, and self-regulation. Too much dopamine can make you psychotic, while too little can literally immobilize you, as with the victims of Parkinson’s disease. In recent years, scientists have learned that brains of people with ADHD have a major problem with this vital chemical.
At that time, scientists estimated that about 1 percent of children had been diagnosed with ADHD, even though there were no reliable national surveys to check the accuracy of that claim. More certain are the increases in the rate of diagnosis over the next couple of decades. The reasons were varied, including the introduction of new diagnostic terms—first ADD in 1980 and then ADHD in 1987—that carried with them new and more expansive criteria. Another boost in the rate of diagnosis came with the emergence of the first community support groups, including what later became Children and Adults with Attention Deficit Disorder (CHADD), a vigorous national lobbyist.
