Some have suggested that children with ADHD will 'outgrow' the disorder as they get older, but a new study of young adults with ADHD in the journal European Child and Adolescent Psychiatry shows that this may not be the case. Researchers at the University of Cambridge in the UK and the University of Oulu, Finland studied the brains of 49 young Finnish adults who were initially diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 16, comparing them to 34 similarly aged healthy controls. The group diagnosed with ADHD in adolescence had a smaller caudate nucleus, a region of the brain that integrates information, and performed more poorly on memory tests, regardless of whether they still met the diagnostic criteria for the disorder. Because medication is rarely used to treat ADHD in Finland, the researchers could exclude the effects of medication. These results show that measuring 'recovery' from ADHD may need to be more broadly based than determining whether or not diagnostic criteria are met. Read more: bit.ly/1JBot27

According to Bessel van der Kolk, M.D., founder of the Trauma Center, “Trauma has nothing whatsoever to do with cognition. It has to do with your body being reset to interpret the world as a dangerous place.” That reset begins in the deep recesses of the brain with its most primitive structures (brain stem), regions that, he says, no cognitive therapy (frontal cortex) can access.

“It’s not something you can talk yourself out of.”

Come learn how to electrochemically heal the deepest recesses of the brain from the consequences of traumatization. Join us in Los Angeles this October for the first West Coast #Havening Techniques Training with the founders of the revolutionary +Havening Techniques!

The breakthrough may raise fears of "home brew heroin," but it could also lead to the creation of better pain medications -- ones that aren't addicting at all.

"Our long term goal is to build a medical robot," said Wei Fan, a researcher for Baidu in Sunnyvale, Calif... The AskADoctor app can assess 520 different diseases, which represent upwards of 90 percent of the most common medical problems nationwide.
The Chinese company is working on a voice-enabled app called AskADoctor that allows users to speak their symptoms and get a likely diagnosis.

A new system can image and analyze neurons on a much finer scale than was ever possible. The work is already overturning assumptions about how neurons work.

Traditional Eastern medicine has long acknowledged the importance of the gut. But evidence-based medicine, colloquially called Western medicine despite being practiced all over the world, has long disregarded a possible link between the brain and the gut – until recently, because a paradigm ...

Called MoodTrek, the application invites users to pick from one of five "smiley face" icons that matches their mood at various times of the day. It can also be connected to a Fitbit wearable to gather activity and sleep data, and then beam it [data] to a Cerner-based EMR platform.
