Many people are confused about ADHD. It’s not so much a deficit of attention, but rather a self-regulation issue. It's easy to understand the confusion; after all, deficit of attention is in its name. In this episode of Attention Talk Radio, ADHD coach Jeff Copper (www.digcoaching.com) interviews Dr. Ari Tuckman (www.adultadhdbook.com) to talk about the physics of electricity in the brain that makes up the biology manifesting in ADHD behavior.  Along the way, they also discuss the major role that the neurotransmitter dopamine plays in ADHD and then use the concept of a dopamine addiction to explain ADHD in a way that is amazingly simple. The model will put a spotlight on the “why” behind self-regulation and ADHD behavior. If you are intrigued by the “why,” you’ll find this show very insightful.
