Join Professor Vincent Walsh in an enlightening discussion on ADHD and the fascinating ways in which the brain operates. Discover the distinctive characteristics that distinguish the brain structure, development and wiring of individuals with ADHD. Gain insight into the underlying causes of ADHD and how understanding it can help us navigate its associated difficulties.
This talk will explore how our knowledge of the neural basis of ADHD does not negate our responsibility to show empathy and compassion towards those who experience it. ADHD is typically associated with difficulties in cognitive control, concentration, timing, memory, and emotional control. Learn about the different ways in which individuals experience these challenges and how interventions, such as neurofeedback and brain stimulation, have their limitations.
The discussion will also delve into the potential benefits of ADHD, such as the ability to hyperfocus and tap into one’s creativity. Whether you have a personal interest in ADHD or are seeking to improve your understanding and behaviour towards individuals who experience it, this talk is for you.
Doors open at 7pm, talk starts at 7.30pm – come down early to grab a good seat!
