Driven to Distraction – ADHD in Adults
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) was believed to be a childhood condition that was outgrown in adolescence. However, a growing body of research has demonstrated that the symptoms of the disorder persist into adulthood in 30 to 50 % of sufferers. In my research, I am focussing on the cognitive deficits of adults with ADHD and the effects of pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatment strategies on these deficits. I am also interested in the development of methods to identify healthy people who simulate an ADHD in order to avoid work, obtain financial compensation, evade criminal prosecution or to obtain drugs.
