Some conditions, such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), have been described as having deficits in emotional recognition that impact social function. However, there is currently controversial evidence as to whether this is due to a primary or secondary deficit in ADHD patients, as the causality of this in relation to the disorder has not yet been identified. In addition, the deficit in facial emotional recognition has not been compared across all stages of development spanning childhood, adolescence and adulthood. We propose to determine the recognition of emotions through facial expression in patients with ADHD to assess whether there is a primary deficit in emotional recognition.
