What’s the Role of Error Processing in ADHD?

Posted on

We don’t yet have a simple answer to the question I posed in the title about what the role of error processing in ADHD is. But researchers increasingly believe that role is important. Inattentive mistakes often seem like trivial annoyances, but to researchers, these blunders could turn out to be a key piece of evidence in unraveling how the brain differences we’ve observed in ADHD translate into ADHD symptoms.
