Time-based prospective memory performance and time-monitoring in children with ADHD


Zinke, K; Altgassen, M; Mackinlay, R J; Rizzo, P; Drechsler, R; Kliegel, M (2010). Time-based prospective memory performance and time-monitoring in children with ADHD. Child Neuropsychology, 16(4):338-349.

Abstract

The current study investigated prospective memory (PM) performance in children with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and controls and aimed at exploring possible underlying factors of PM performance. Twenty-two children with ADHD and 39 age- and ability-matched typically developing children performed a computerized time-based PM task. As predicted, children with ADHD had fewer correct PM responses than controls. Neither differences in overall ongoing task performance nor, remarkably, differences in overall frequency and accuracy of time monitoring were found. Exploratory analyses suggest that individual differences in time monitoring in the final interval before target times may be related to PM performance in ADHD.
