Course Content: Roy, A., Oldehinkel, A. J., & Hartman, C. A. (2017). Cognitive functioning in adolescents with self-reported ADHD and depression: Results from a population-based study. Journal of abnormal child psychology, 45(1), 69-81. https://doi.org/10.1007/s10802-016-0160-x

Course Description: This study examined differences in cognitive functioning among adolescents with ADHD or depression, only, those with both disorders, and individuals with neither disorder. Linear mixed effects modeling was utilized to assess cognitive functioning differences between groups and across timepoints. Compared to adolescents without ADHD, the ADHD only group initially exhibited longer response time variability which later declined, while the ADHD and depression group exhibited higher reaction times for working memory maintenance at follow-up. Therefore, adolescent ADHD appears to be associated with worse cognitive functioning and lower reaction time variability, while co-morbid ADHD and depression is associated with worse working memory maintenance.

Learning Objectives

  1. Identify the main purpose of the study and the methods related to the cognitive differences between adolescents with ADHD, depression, comorbid ADHD/depression, and those with neither disorder.
  2. Interpret the data by exploring the statistical tests used in conjunction with the discussed findings.
  3. Evaluate the study’s strengths, limitations, and implications.
