Mon, Nov 3, 2014|Filed in: Bookmarks|Topics: |Comments Off on A natural fix for ADHD

Compared with the rest of us, they have sluggish and underfed brain reward circuits, so much of everyday life feels routine and understimulating.

To compensate, they are drawn to new and exciting experiences and get famously impatient and restless with the regimented structure that characterizes our modern world. In short, people with A.D.H.D. may not have a disease, so much as a set of behavioral traits that don’t match the expectations of our contemporary culture. · Go to A natural fix for ADHD →
