Abstract

To examine the possibility that pathological gambling is related to the deficits in impulse control associated with attention deficit disorder, 14 pathological gamblers and 16 controls were administered questionnaires concerning their childhood behaviors. These self-reports indicated a strong correlation between pathological gambling and childhood behaviors related to attention deficit disorder.
