The same- but different?

So, yesterday, I described a meta-analytical study about ADHD. You recall that effecting a meta analysis means one examines data collected from various studies and attempts to see if there are correlative results among the studies. (See that word- correlative? Meta-analysis doesn’t really help to determine causation; it just lets one correlate large collections of data to see if there is a trend or factor that stands out.)
