Attention Deficit Disorder

In the 1970’s, medical specialist began using the term “Attention Deficit Disorder” (ADD). It is a neurological condition involving the under activity in the front outer layer (frontal cortex) of the brain which is responsible for the regulation of attention, impulse control and motor activity. This area of the brain also plays an important role in regulating emotions. The condition is largely inherited and tends to run in the families. It is understand that the condition is most often associated with children, but there has been more recent understanding that it can continue into adulthood for many individuals. Unfortunately, in this case adults are diagnosed or treated for “Adult Attention Deficit Disorder”.
