  ADHD Markers Have Been Identified, Which Could Mean More Accurate Diagnosis Research from the Radiology Society of North America has uncovered brain markers in children with ADHD, which could indicate if a child has a neurodevelopmental disorder. ADHD, which spells out Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, is a condition that affects a person's ability to focus their attention on a task. It can manifest as a need to fidget, as hyperactivity, as impulsiveness or as inattention. It can have lifelong effects on people, affecting their academic and professional performance. It's widely common in children. This new research however could make it easier for medical professionals to diagnose children with the disorder.

Even in people who have to be removed from parts of the large intestine - i.e. the rectum - such sensations occur, for example, after an operation required by colon cancer.

"People who have lost a member still have pain or itching or they feel that their limb is still there," said BBC presenter Sam Cleasby, who had to endure a colectomy in 2013, opposite the BBC .

"So that's the same, but in your rectum. It is as if your brain does not know that it is no longer connected." A colectomy is the surgical removal of the colon, i.e. the colon, without removal of the rectum.

The "Phantom Rectum Syndrome" does not occur as regularly as classic phantom sensations, but still quite frequently, namely 32 to 68 percent of the patients.
