Thanks for your question! ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder is a neurological condition characterized by cognitive deficits such as inattention/poor working memory and behavioral patterns of disinhibition.  Several online resources are useful for researching ADHD. First, you can search GALILEO (If you do not have the GALILEO password you can access your library record to get it). If you use the keyword "ADHD," the first thing in your search results will be the Research Starter. This very useful guide will give you an overview of the condition and additional keywords to use in your searching. Below the research starter you will see multiple articles. To narrow the list, use the limiters on the left side of the page. You should be able to find some useful articles. 

GALILEO isn't the only useful source on ADHD! Take a look at the National Institute of Mental Health's page on the topic. You can also take a look at the U.S. National Library of Medicine
