Understanding how proper treatment can lead to improved outcomes for those diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) will be the focus of the next Brain & Behavior Research Foundation monthly webinar on Tuesday, September 13, 2016 from 2 to 3 p.m. EST. Francisco Xavier Castellanos, M.D., NARSAD Grantee, and professor of radiology, physiology and neuroscience at the NYU School of Medicine will discuss his research using brain imaging studies to confirm that a fundamental aspect of ADHD is delayed maturation, and when supported through adolescence, ADHD outcomes can be brilliant.
The free webinar is open to the public, who can register online at bbrfoundation.org/webinars. During the last 15 minutes of the webinar, Dr. Castellanos will answer questions posed by participants.
This webinar is part of a monthly series in which Jeffrey Borenstein, M.D., president & CEO of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation, hosts presentations by leading mental health researchers who discuss and answer questions about the latest in new technologies, early intervention strategies and next-generation therapies for brain and behavior disorders and mental illness. Each webinar is live tweeted with the hashtag #brainchat. After the live event, recordings of the webinars are available on the Foundation’s website at: bbrfoundation.org/webinar.
