Back in 2012, a blog was written claiming it explained the reason “Why French Kids Don’t Have ADHD.” In the article, Dr. Marilyn Wedge made the astonishing claim that while American children suffered ADHD prevalence rates of around 9 percent, French children have a prevalence rate of “less than 0.5 percent.” The only problem with this claim? It’s not true. The article appeared on Psychology Today, that bastion o...

This study aimed to identify children with ADHD utilizing a novel interregional morphological connectivity model and discover the discriminative patterns in patients. Therefore, novel interregional morphological patterns rather than regional patterns were extracted via surface-based analysis. The interregional morphological features were trained and tested using a hybrid machine learning method, which was implemented using the leave-one-out cross-validation (LOOCV) method to produce the optimized discriminative model and discriminative patterns. The inclusion of interregional morphological connectivity significantly improv...

I don’t play. I don’t do games. When one of my colleagues in the industry asked me what educational games I would recommend for the summer I found myself thinking: What do I know about games?

As I dug a little deeper, I realized I was battling a familiar pang: mother guilt layered upon the recognition that I don’t play enough with my daughter. I do laundry, I pack the bags, I obsess about whether or not we’ll make it out of the door on time for school, sports, playdate, doctor ...
