At least 10% of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder showed copy number variations in four glutamate receptor genes, a study found. In a study reported in Nature Genetics, researchers analyzed 1,000 children who have ADHD and 4,100 children without the condition. The study found that ADHD had a genetic basis in some children and offered a potential avenue for developing treatment, an expert said.
