neurocognitive deficits in ADHD and conduct disorder. Same same

Really interesting work reported here http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2014/08/140812121542.htm?
Essentially, the basis of young people with ADHD, conduct disorder and substance misuse show very similar neurocognitive patterns. This might suggest some shared causation, and possible intervention targets which cut across all conditions. We shall see, but if the cognitive deficits can be targeted specifically, that would be a revolution in conical and diagnostic practice.
