Quantitative and molecular genetic studies play a pivotal role in helping us understand the mechanisms involved and the links between ADHD and comorbid disorders in adult life (Asherson, Kuntsi, & Taylor, 2005). Basic research in this area is important because it may help us not only develop novel medical and targeted psychosocial interventions for prevention and treatment but also clarify the nosological distinctions of adult ADHD from other common adult psychiatric disorders. For example, the trait-like characteristics of ADHD symptoms that start during childhood or early adolescence and have a chronic persistent course and the frequency of symptoms such as mood instability that frequently co-occur alongside ‘core’ ADHD symptoms mean that there is symptom overlap between ADHD, personality disorder, and dysthymia; this overlap leads to considerable confusion about the separate validity of the diagnostic construct of ADHD in adults (Asherson, 2005).
