ADHD, also known as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, is one of the most prevalent neurodevelopmental diseases identified in young children. Hyperactivity, impulsivity, and difficulty focusing are symptoms of this disease. This ailment is long-lasting. “When you break down and understand the science behind what is happening – it changes everything because you finally have the pieces you can put together to give you the bigger picture,” wrote Therapist Lalitaa Suglani as quoted by HT.
Memory: The functioning of short-term and working memory in the brain is impacted by ADHD. This has additional effects on our memory, frequently causing us to forget both recent and distant memories.
Time regulation: We are unable to set aside time for necessary tasks when we have active-dopamine dysregulation. As a result, I hurried through the remaining tasks for the day.
Dullness: Prefrontal brain underactivity impairs executive functioning, making it difficult to grasp the urgency of the task at hand. We continue to put off and put off doing the work as a result.
Hyperfocus: Hyperfocus is the process of giving the subject at hand your whole attention and focus. People with ADHD find it difficult to change their focus due to issues with neurotransmitter modulation
Daydreaming: Mind wandering is the term used to describe frequent interruptions that lead to daydreaming. The brain’s default mode network becomes overactive, which causes the brain to lose attention and start daydreaming.
Neural imbalance: Neurotransmitter imbalances can exaggerate emotional responses to perceived rejection, resulting in tension, worry, and overthinking. An heightened emotional response may make it challenging for us to deal with the feelings in a constructive way.
