Abstract

A sindrome de hiperatividade com déficit de atenção (SHDA) constitui distúrbio comum na infância, podendo advir de fatores exógenos ou endógenos, os quais são responsáveis por comprometimento cerebral, manifestando-se por alterações funcionais dos sistemas motores, perceptivos, cognitivos e do comportamento, comprometendo a aprendizagem de crianças com potencial intelectual adequado. Os autores estudam a ação de fármacos estimulantes e antidepressivos na SHDA, usando como parâmetro de eficácia as provas de persistência motora.<br>Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurological disorder which is common in the childhood and can be caused by exogenous and endogenous factors, that are responsible for cerebral disorder.
