Nocturnal enuresis and Attention Deficit


Myriad studies have addressed the relation between nocturnal enuresis and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. The association has been documented in both sexes. This review examines the constructs of childhood ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) and nocturnal enuresis, viz., bed-wetting. Three foci guide the analysis. First, biological and psychological models of nocturnal enuresis are compared and contrasted. Second, issues arising from construct definition are addressed. Third, the methods, technologies, and operating tenets used in the studies are examined. The review is purposefully delimited to studies and research published during the 20th and 21st centuries.


Thankful for my family, friends, and professors for their help and support.
