Attention deficit disorders and schizophrenia could stem from impaired brain coordination

“People with attention deficits have difficulty focusing and often display compulsive behavior. The new study suggests these symptoms could be due to dysfunction in a gene—ErbB4—that helps different brain regions communicate. The gene is a known risk factor for psychiatric disorders, and is required to maintain healthy neurotransmitter levels in the brain.”


I know somebody with a.d. disorder. They’re doing quite well in life financially anyway. But they’re a workaholic so maybe that’s the compulsive side of things.
