Abstract
The current study investigated the relationship between attention- and working memory-deficits in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and typically developing children (N = 23). Direct observations of visual attention across baseline and eight working memory conditions revealed that inattention in ADHD is functionally related to working memory deficits in the central executive, phonological, and visuospatial systems.
