The aim of this work is to analyze the three dimensions of attention, namely vigilance, selectivity and orienting, as identified in Attention Network Theory (ANT), in subjects with ADHD, with attention problems and with typical development. Fourteen ADHD, fifteen with attention problems and fifteen typically developing subjects were tested on ANT. Results showed that children with ADHD obtained low scores for accuracy and a high score for RT. It has also emerged that children with ADHD show no deficits for orienting and vigilance network, but they show deficits in the efficiency of the executive network compared to children with attention problems and typically developed.

Abstract

The aim of this work is to analyze the three dimensions of attention, namely vigilance, selectivity and orienting, as identified in Attention Network Theory (ANT), in subjects with ADHD, with attention problems and with typical development. Fourteen ADHD, fifteen with attention problems and fifteen typically developing subjects were tested on ANT. Results showed that children with ADHD obtained low scores for accuracy and a high score for RT. It has also emerged that children with ADHD show no deficits for orienting and vigilance network, but they show deficits in the efficiency of the executive network compared to children with attention problems and typically developed.
