Reinforcement gradient, response inhibition, genetic versus experiential effects, and multiple pathways to ADHD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

1 Scopus citations


Major contributions emanating from Sagvolden et al.'s theory include elucidation of the role in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) of temporal information processing, social learning, and response extinction learning. Key issues include a need for clearer explanation of the relative role of impulsivity versus response suppression/ inhibition in the dual process model, and delineation of genotype-environment correlations versus interactions in the social and experiential mechanisms posited.
