Cases Without Borders: Psychotherapy for All: An Experiment

Attention Deficits That May Linger Well Past Childhood

“Dr. Philip Shaw, the National Institute of Mental Health psychiatrist who led the imaging study, was surprised and dismayed to see the results taken up to bolster that brand of doubt. “The findings, if anything, are very good evidence of yet another major biological difference between kids with A.D.H.D. and typically developing children,” he said. “The study was very much a question about the biology of A.D.H.D., and I think the findings certainly would feed into the idea of A.D.H.D. as being a very real problem with a very clear biological basis.”
