Now seeing if there’s links between ADHD and Pre-SMA: ” Although disadvantageous in terms of automaticity, prefrontal circuit activation would suggest a compensatory mechanism for response inhibition by children with ADHD in the face of lesser activation of the pre-SMA.” “There is an increasing agreement among previously published MRI studies that decreased activation in the pre-SMA might lead to compensatory higher prefrontal activity during No/Go events in ADHD patients (Suskauer et al., 2008a)” ” In summary, less ISV was associated with activation in premotor circuits, and more ISV was associated with activation in prefrontal circuits, suggesting that in a simplified motor task, the use of premotor circuits is associated with more efficient task performance as compared to the use of prefrontal circuits associated with higher order cognitive control.” These findings are particularly relevant to children with ADHD, in whom anatomic and functional abnormalities of the pre-SMA have been identified.21–24 Similar to TD children with higher ISV, children with ADHD, who as a group demonstrate more ISV, may recruit prefrontal regions to compensate for less efficient use of premotor systems.” OH! ADHD shows equivalent results to a typical developed person who has high intrasubject variability (that is, trials don’t give consistent results with the same person) So, ADHD uses pre-frontal to compensate for less efficient premotor – yet can achieve performance levels equivalent to those with functional premotor systems; – hm. Need to look up brain-chatter and Pre-SMA – and also see if I can find animations of the different activations; and I expect to find a similar patterns in very preterm (premature) born
