    Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood-onset neuropsychiatric disorder characterized by cardinal features of inattention, locomotor hyperactivity and poor impulse control. Research indicates that ADHD is associated with alterations in the higher cortical circuits...

    Imaginary tasks can be used to investigate the neurophysiology of gait. In this study, we explored the cortical control of gait-related imagery in 21 healthy volunteers using functional magnetic resonance imaging. Imaginary tasks included gait initiation, stepping over an obstacle, and gait...
