Approximately 2-5% of children suffer from ADHD and in this podcast, Dr Katia Rubia begins by answering the question 'What is ADHD?', addressing the triad of symptoms – age inappropriate inattention, hyperactivity, impulsiveness – and raising some diagnostic and cultural issues. She then goes on to discuss in detail brain development and the neurobiological implications.
