An interesting article about an fMRI study that Yale researchers did surrounding ADHD and the identification of measurable, brain-based differences in individuals with the condition. We hope this can some day improve our own diagnostic accuracy, as well as benefit the social dialogue around what ADHD really is. At the core, individual's with ADHD possess cognitive differences that manifest as behavioral symptoms. The understanding that these brain based differences are physiological and not related to motivation, drive, parenting, etc., will hopefully provide more support and understanding to children and families struggling with these issues.
