The Biology Behind the Behavior
ADHD is the most common psychiatric disorder diagnosed in children in America. It remains, as well, one of the most controversial in terms of diagnosis and treatment approaches. Recently, the fields of neuroanatomy, molecular genetics and neurochemistry are beginning to shed some real light as to the complexities, and actualities of this important disorder.
Take this 5 question pre-test to review and learn!
Spend only 2-3 minutes on it
Answers will be reviewed before I continue with the presentation.
Many people feel manipulated by the ADHD individual due to the inconsistencies of their behaviors.
Knowing the biology behind the behavior will help you to realize that those who suffer from ADHD have not mastered developmentally appropriate skills; ie, communication, study skills and at times are lagging in maturity
If they can channel their energy, enthusiasm and love of novelty, they can become very successful in the workplace.
Studies show that about 1/3 of adults with ADHD can become entrepreneurs by their 30’s.
Neurotransmitters related to important mental processes and adaptive behaviors
Are those people related??
New advances in molecular genetics have enabled science to selectively “knock out” one gene in a sample of mice. By observing and contrasting generations of mice with and without a particular genetic influence behaviors can be observed, compared and contrasted.
