The host, Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., is the President & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, and host of the public television series Healthy Minds. Register to hear their informative discussion on ADHD.

According to the CDC, a national survey of parents in 2022 revealed an estimated 7 million children in the United States ages 3–17 have ever been diagnosed with ADHD. The National Institute of Mental Health reports that attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders and can continue through adolescence and into adulthood.

ADHD is a widely pervasive neurodevelopmental condition characterized by inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, contributing to difficulties in everyday activities. While ADHD has traditionally been considered a difference in cognition, motivational alterations have also been implicated in both theoretical and experimental models of ADHD. In this talk, Dr. Chiew will highlight recent research examining changes in motivational processes in ADHD, potential downstream consequences for cognitive performance, and implications for characterization and management of ADHD symptoms.
