Frustration intolerance in ADHD - neurophysiological correlates


Frustration intolerance in ADHD - neurophysiological correlates

Irritable adolescents show lower thresholds for anger when they do not receive an expected reward.12 Irritable adolescents show reduced selective attention and response inhibition compared to normally developed peers.3

Several neurophysiological correlates have been reported for frustration intolerance (reduced frustration thresholds, e.g. when an expected reward is not received):4

  • Amygdala less activated256
  • Striatum less activated25
  • anterior and posterior cingulum less activated25
  • middle frontal gyrus less activated25
  • anterior cingulum increased activated6
  • middle frontal gyrus increased activation6
  • lateral PFC increased activated
    • for children aged 3 to 5 years7
  • greater N2 amplitude in the EEG and reduced no-go accuracy
    • for children aged 4-7 years8
