Neuropsychological Assessment of the Relationship of Working Memory with K-BIT Matrices and Vocabulary in Normal Development and ADHD Children and Adolescents

CONCLUSIONS: There is a relationship during development between WM as measured with WMTBC and general intelligence as measured with K-BIT in ND and ADHD subjects. The dysexecutive character of ADHD has been shown, given that by controlling for intelligence, the differences in WM performance between ND and ADHD disappear, except for WM CE. The results suggest that in ADHD subjects, the WM VSS component presents a more pivotal role during cognitive processing compared to ND subjects.
