What are the causes of ADHD?

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that affects the brain. ADHD can appear in families and can be passed down from one generation to another, much like eye colour or height. Other factors, like the levels of neurotransmitters (the chemicals used to send messages in the brain), may also play a role.
