Blood, Urine Test Could Help Diagnose Autism Earlier In Children

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 17:56:06 +0100

This study does not tell us how effectively this measure can differentiate between autism and other neurodevelopmental or mental health conditions such as ADHD and anxiety.” Autism is a developmental disorder that mainly affects social interaction, causing a wide spectrum of behavioral problems, including hyperactivity, anxiety or speech disturbances. An estimated 30% of cases have been found to have genetic causes. The remaining 70% are thought to be caused by a combination of environmental factors, mutations and genetics, according to the study. Currently, if a child is suspected of having autism, doctors carry out a series of behavioral tests, which take time and may not not give an accurate diagnosis. A biological test, like a blood test, would provide a faster and more definitiv...

Mon, 19 Feb 2018 15:00:02 +0100

You’re a mom who has ADHD, and you’re in the thick of mothering. Maybe you’re in the thick of toddlerhood, besieged by big tantrums and bleary-eyed after one-too-many sleepless nights. Maybe you’re in the thick of adolescence, trying to traverse schedules and emotional roller coasters. Maybe you have several kids, and find yourself frustrated and stressed out over all the logistics. Maybe none of the above describes your situation. But you still feel utterly inadequate and unsure and panicked that you’re parenting all wrong. You’re not alone. Terry Matlen, an ADHD coach, author and mom to two daughters, vividly remembers regularly feeling overwhelmed just getting through the day. Even though one of her daughters has ADHD, both were hyperactive. She needed quiet and downtime. In...



Study finds that a surprise stimulus helps people stop an action

The Genius Within by David Adam review – to what extent is intelligence determined by genes?

Zapping his brain and taking ‘smart pills’, Adam’s fascinating history of how we define intelligence raises intriguing questions about our futureThe old myth that you only use 10% of your brain is obviously rubbish.

Over the last decade, this sci-fi possibility has started to approach reality, and David Adam ’s book is a timely prologue to the brave new world that might await us.On the internet you can now buy gizmos to stimulate your brain with low doses of electricity.

Do I Have ADHD?

Thu, 01 Feb 2018 22:21:32 +0100

“Do I have ADHD?” It’s a question traditionally asked of a person’s family physician, since that’s typically the only healthcare professional with whom most people have an existing relationship. But in the past few decades, the question of whether or not a person has attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been posed to the Internet. And the Internet has responded. Psych Central was one of the first mental health websites to offer an online ADHD quiz to test to see if a person might qualify for a diagnosis of attention deficit disorder, back in the late 1990s. We developed our quizzes from the diagnostic criteria for ADHD, which is basically a simply symptom checklist. Qualifying for an ADHD Diagnosis Of course, only a trained mental health profess...

The scientists identified factors that govern the growth of our brains and, in some cases, set the stage for several brain disorders that appear later in life.BACKGROUNDThe human brain differs from that of mice and monkeys because of its large cerebral cortex. The organ ’s most highly developed part, the cerebral cortex is responsible for thinking, perceiving and sophisticated communication.
