- Shifting Focus: From Group Patterns to Individual Neurobiological Differences in Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder– With anywhere from 6 to 18 symptoms, there are nearly as many ways to reach a diagnosis of ADHD as there are synapses in the brain! (Relax mathletes, we know 18 choose 6 is only 18,564 combinations. Hardly close to 10^15.) What’s really going on here that leads to such heterogeneous clinical pictures? This piece uses research from functional neuroimaging to break down the different brain pathways associated with various ADHD symptoms.
