ADHD: Controversy, Key Research Findings, Rising Prevalence, and Promise

This video is 1 hour and 5 minutes long.

Dr. Stephen Hinshaw of The University of California, San Francisco and The University of California, Berkeley will discuss the many controversies surrounding attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), basing the presentation in scientific findings rather than the myths that so often surround the topic. Included will be processes underlying ADHD, prevalence in males vs. females, risk for long-term impairments, the role of school policies in predicting rising rates of diagnosis, and a brief summary of effective treatments.

This video is from a presentation of monthly The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation’s Meet the Scientist Webinar featuring a researcher discussing the latest findings related to mental illness.
