fMRI Project

The Departments of Child Psychiatry and Forensic and Neurodevelopmental Science at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience (IoPPN), King’s College London, are looking for right-handed male volunteers with ADHD between 18-35 years of age to participate in a research project. 

The project is studying areas that may cause difficulties for some people with ADHD, such as attention, timing and decision-making. This is not a treatment trial and participation in this project won’t help you directly. However, we hope that this project will help us better understand these difficulties and develop ways of helping people with ADHD who may have problems in some of these areas. For further details please see the attached. 

If you have any questions, please contact Dr Clodagh Murphy at the IoPPN:,

National registry and Bio resource for ADHD in Adults

Main Aims

The aim of the Biobank is to establish a clinical and biological resource for the study of ADHD in adults. The Adult ADHD Biobank will take the form of a registry with a core set of demographic and clinical data linked to the collection of blood samples or saliva samples for the collection and storage of DNA, RNA and protein. The registry will be used to collect clinically relevant information from registered participants to address questions about course, outcome and treatment of ADHD, or to collect further information that can be linked back to the biological data.
