Uhlig 1997: Topographic mapping of brain electrical activity in children with food-induced attention deficit hyperkinetic disorder

UhligEuropean Journal of Pediatrics, 1997. Jul;156(7):557-61.

Uhlig carried out EEG brain mapping on 15 children with food-induced ADHD, both when they were on their diet and when they had been given provoking foods.

Consuming the provoking foods caused a significant increase in betal activity in the frontotemporal areas of the brain.

QUOTE:  “These data support the hypothesis that in a subgroup of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder certain foods may not only influence clinical symptoms but may also alter brain electrical activity.”
