Locating the Timekeeping Centers of the Brain
Timing is everything. It comes into play when making split-second decisions like knowing when to stop at a red light, catch a ball or modulate a rhythm when playing the piano. Researchers Stephen M. Rao, PhD, of the Medical College of Wisconsin, Deborah Harrington, MD, of the Veterans Affairs Medical Center in Albuquerque, and Andrew R. Mayer, also of the Medical College, have now identified the areas in the brain that are responsible for perceiving the passage of time in order to carry out critical everyday functions. Their study is the first to demonstrate that the basal ganglia (brain tissue involved in motor coordination) and the parietal lobe of the brain are critical areas for this timekeeping system. Their study, published in the March 2001 issue of Nature Neuroscience (Vol. 4, No. 3), questions a long-standing and widely held belief in the scientific community that the cerebellum is the critical structure involved in time perception.

CWK Producer "When I was depressed as a child, it could look like I was moody or antisocial, and when I was manic, it could look like I was incredibly active and productive."
-Lizzie Simon, 17- At 17, Lizzie Simon was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. "I became psychotic and thought I was a cat, thought the CIA was after me, all kinds of horrible things," Simon says. Reflecting on her childhood, she says the signs of her illness always existed. "When I was depressed as a child, it could look like I was moody or antisocial, and when I was manic, it could look like I was incredibly active and productive," she says. Shifts between mania and depression are classic bipolar symptoms. But the illness can also mimic attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), characterized by "short attention span and distractibility, impulsivity and hyperactivity," says Dr. Steven Jaffe, a child psychiatrist. Those similarities can lead to misdiagnosis. According to the Child and Adolescent Bipolar Foundation, 15% of children diagnosed with ADHD may actually be bipolar.

Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
What is attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder? Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is an illness characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity. The most commonly diagnosed behavior disorder in young persons, ADHD affects an estimated three percent to five percent of school-age children. Although ADHD is usually diagnosed in childhood, it is not a disorder limited to children-ADHD often persists into adolescence and adulthood and is frequently not diagnosed until later years. What are the symptoms of ADHD? There are actually three different types of ADHD, each with different symptoms: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive/impulsive, and combined. Those with the predominantly inattentive type often:
  • fail to pay close attention to details or make careless mistakes in schoolwork, work, or other activities have difficulty sustaining attention to tasks or leisure activities do not seem to listen when spoken to directly do not follow through on instructions and fail to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace

[Skip Introduction and jump to Quick Index of the Diagnoses and Theories of ADHD ] Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is usually first diagnosed in children and adolescents. It is characterized by inappropriate degrees of inattention, impulsivity and/or hyperactivity. Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder are typically:
  • impulsive
  • forgetful
  • restless to the point of disruption
  • prone to fail
  • unable to follow through on tasks
  • unpredictable
  • moody
These characteristics appear in early childhood, are relatively chronic in nature, and are not due to other physical, mental or emotional causes. From time to time, all children will be inattentive, impulsive and/or exhibit high activity levels. However, for children with ADHD, the persistence, pattern, and frequency of this behavior is much greater. These behaviors are the rule, not the exception. Performance variability is also common among children with ADHD. For instance, it is difficult for teachers to understand why a child can remember homework assignments on Monday and Tuesday but forget them on Wednesday.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood behavioral disorder, but it can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to understand.

Parents Medical Problems Learning Disorders
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common childhood behavioral disorder, but it can be difficult to diagnose and even harder to understand. What should you do if your child has ADHD, and how can you help your child deal with this disorder? Symptoms and Signs of ADHD
Children who have ADHD may know what to do, but they are not always able to complete their tasks because they are unable to focus, are impulsive, or are easily distracted. For example, children with ADHD often cannot sit still or pay attention in school. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) estimates that ADHD affects between 4% and 12% of all school-age children. ADHD can create problems for these children at home, at school, or in their relationships with friends. According to the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), two to three times more boys than girls are affected by ADHD, but the reason for this difference is not clear. But what is ADHD? You may be more familiar with the term attention deficit disorder , or ADD . This disorder was renamed ADHD in 1994 by the American Psychiatric Association and includes three subtypes: 1. an

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Joan Reid If your child has been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, you may be wondering what form of treatment to use. Usually, medication and/or behavior management are recommended. Neither medication alone nor behavior management alone gives consistent long-term results. Medication alone does not help children with ADHD a great deal in their social and academic functioning. Behavioral therapy may be needed to tackle ADHD-related behavior problems. Behavior therapy alone often doesn't give the benefits as when used with medication. This may be partly because effective behavior-management programs are difficult to implement. They require ongoing efforts and cooperation over long periods of time by the children, parents, and teachers if they are to work. But when combined, medication and behavior management offer the greatest chance for long-term successful management of behavior.

Resources ADHD or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, once called hyperkinesis, is a behavioral disorder that usually expresses itself in early childhood. Early diagnosis is important because intervention tends to be more effective if it is begun before adolescence. Children with ADHD are often restless, hyperactive, have difficulty completing tasks or focusing on a project, are disruptive or impulsive. Many children with ADHD are extremely bright and capable. They often excel at certain skills, while having great difficulties with others. Their behavior can be destructive and can often cause painful social and academic consequences.
