Cognitive Effects

The cognitive effects of hydrocephalus vary considerably based on the impact on specific areas of the brain. Included are deficits in attention, executive functioning, learning, motor skills, and behavior (MatarĂ³ et al. 2001). Behavioral problems, specifically those characterized by inattention, are related to the degree of severity. Most patients present with overactivity, inattention, and impulsivity. It is also possible that symptoms of ADHD may be a consequence of executive dysfunction due to changes in the frontodorsal striatal circuit or alterations in the frontoventral striatal circuits (Sonuga-Barke 2002, 2004).
