Human Gene Variant Produces Attention Deficit Disorder-like Problems In Mice

Human gene variant produces attention deficit disorder-like problems in mice

Mutant mice are providing scientists with a new neurobiological framework to understand the brain changes observed in distractible humans who carry a common gene variant whose frequency has been associated with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). The scientists demonstrate that mice that express the variant adopt an inattentive phenotype similar to that seen in humans.
