ADHD temperaments do not experience "normal" emotions

I do not think infants born with more emotionally sensitive ADHD temperaments experience "early normal" emotions.

And that "early abnormal" emotional experiences partly due to being born with a more emotionally sensitive temperament can interfere with the early development of neocortical self regulation.

Re: ADHD temperaments do not experience "normal" emotions

When early normal bottom up brain development is impaired, early normal top down brain development is impaired?

Re: ADHD temperaments do not experience "normal" emotions



In this video Dr Barkley says moods are normal but the top down ability to regulate moods is not normal.

But if a infant child is born with a more emotionally sensitive pre ADHD temperament, then how could the infant child's early moods be normal?

The foundation of neocortical self regulation develops inthe first few years of life.

I think it is extremely important for primary caregivers etc, to recognize the more sensitive emotional temperament (and associated moods) in regards to possibly lessening severity of deficits of self regulation in early life.

Re: ADHD temperaments do not experience "normal" emotions

I'm confused, surely babies with ADHD can feel normal emotions, same as any other baby even if they don't recognise what the emotion is?

Thanks for discussing the topics with me.

Edit: All babies are born with the same 7 unconditioned emotional response systems.

I do not think the moods of the baby born with a ADHD emotionally hyperreactive temperament, would be the same as the moods of the baby born with a NT emotionally reactive temperament.

Why wouldn't they be the same? Even if they can't understand their emotions surely they'd feel the same emotions as babies? Clean slate and all that?

(having trouble with the laptop so please don't answer with youtube videos to explain anything, can you explain in words for tonight please mild?)

Re: ADHD temperaments do not experience "normal" emotions

In what way do you think their emotions and moods differ?

Even now as adulta I dont think that our emotions are fundamentally different. Its just that our ability to regulate them is different.

Infants born with ADHD temperaments are more sensitive to emotional stimuli.

From a top down adult perspective...

Anxiety appears to be most common top down ADHD co-morbidity.


But from a bottom up early childhood perspective...

ADHD appears to be the most common bottom up "subterranean" Anxiety Disorder co-morbidity.


Our brain functions mature from the bottom up.

Top down functions mature in a reciprocal relationship with bottom up functions.

Primary emotional behavior associated with bottom up emotional temperaments are easiest observed in the first couple years of life, before the top down complex functions and associated behavior mature.

More complex top down executive functions gain more control of our bottom up emotional temperaments as we mature.

Babies born with hypersensitivity, or sensory processing disorder, don't always
develop ADHD. They may have Autism or another disorder. Or not quite reach
the threshold for any diagnosis.

The emotions they feel are not different than the emotions that neurotypical
people feel, they just have difficulty filtering any stimuli, including emotions,
and therefore feel them more intensely.

As far as the which came first issue: hypersensitivity or ADHD, the final
answer isn't in yet.

I agree.

I think it is a good idea, to identify all emotional temperaments for all emotional disorders including ADHD .

What do you mean by "filtering", do you mean we lack emotional self regulation?

All people (with and without emotional disorders) have the same 7 primary unconditioned emotional response systems in general, like all people have the same cardiovascular systems in general.

A person who has severe ADHD would feel more intense mood swings than a person who has mild ADHD, etc.
