The ADHD syndrome is often seen to be in the middle of a very long
spectrum with the Epilepsy syndrome (petit mal, absence, psychomotor,
temporal lobe, complex partial) on one end and Tourette's (tics)
syndrome on the other end. The symptom of inattention/attention
deficits is associated with more than one syndrome. Often underlying
the whole concept of attention deficit is the idea of a
microscopic/whatever injury point somewhere in the brain (often
involving the reticular formation of the brain stem/associated areas)
where it is known that a group of CNS medicines classified as
stimulants/alerting agents are known to occasionally and temporarily
reduce some of the symptoms associated with ADHD by reducing
distractibility and increasing attention span. The ADHD-ADD-
Hyperactivity newsgroup is: alt.support.attn-deficit
