For the new research, in the Journal of Lipids, 16 studies were analyzed, including those where omega fatty acids were a stand-alone treatment and others where they were used alongside drugs.

WithAdult ADHD, when we are in a hurry, we blunder in glorious ways. If only there was a way to prevent that.I have a quickie tip for you today as I ’m blazing around my life like some earthbound comet.Last month, I was quickly packaging up an item I had sold on eBay. The item was secure. The box was sealed. All it needed was a shipping label.I don ’t sell a lot on eBay, but I’ve got a system I’ve developed over the years. After I pay for the postage online, I both print the label AND save it as a PDF. Redundancy is good for these sorts of things. When I went to fetch the printed label, I discovered...

AbstractSome authors hypothesize that autism in children from orphanages results from neglect, which has been referred to as “quasi-autistic pattern” and “post-institutional autistic syndrome.” However, studies of children who have been neglected show even higher rates of ADHD, oppositional defiant and conduct disorders, anxiety, and depression than rates of autism. Our study determined if autism symptoms differed between children with autism who were and were not maltreated and if duration of and number of years since removal from neglect were related to symptoms in 789 children with autism, 2&ndas...

In this study, electrophysiological markers of attention, posterior contralateral N2 (N2pc), and working memory, contralateral delay activity (CDA), were used to explore the relationship between these two cognitive abilities in patients with ADHD. EEG data were collected from adults with ADHD and age-, sex-, and IQ-matched normal controls while performing a classical visuospatial working memory task that consisted of low-load and high-load memory conditions. In different memory load conditions, the memory array elicited a smaller N2pc (220–260 ms) and a smaller CDA (400–800 ms) in adults with ADHD than in n...

Cho, Limor Lichtenstein-Vidne, Hadas Okon-Singer, Deborah Dewey, Signe BrayAbstractAttention traits are a cornerstone to the healthy development of children’s performance in the classroom, their interactions with peers, and in predicting future success and problems. The cerebellum is increasingly appreciated as a region involved in complex cognition and behavior, and moreover makes important connections to key brain networks known to support attention: the dorsal attentio...

Ellis, Harah Jang, Mathieu E. Wimmer, Debra BangasserAbstractStress can disrupt memory and contribute to cognitive impairments in psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. These diseases are more common in men than in women, with men showing greater cognitive impairments. Mnemonic deficits induced by stress are mediated, in part, by corticotropin releasing factor (CRF). However, wher...

Julian Tang, MDAttention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental health challenges in the United States. Approximately 8% of children between the ages of 6 to 17 yrs. old have been diagnosed with ADHD with boys being twice as likely as girls to have ADHD.Does my kid have ADHD?This is one of the most common questions we get from parents and caregivers and the answer is not that straightforward. Children already have a wide presentation of temperaments, levels of physical activity, and focus levels. The brain also continuously develops and matures over time which affects a child &rs...
