In this week's episode, I speak to one of the world's most influential psychologists and researchers on ADHD, Professor Stephen Faraone.
We go into defining ADHD , the role of executive functions and the differences in cognitive processes between individuals with and without the disorder. We also discuss the impact of social media on ADHD awareness and insights into the genetic components of ADHD, such as twin studies, genome-wide association studies, and the polygenic nature of the condition. Dr Faraone tackle the crucial topic of ADHD medication like Adderall, and Ritalin, and other non-drug interventions. Finally, we go into his work and his contributions in the field.
