Dr. Hallowell's latest book, ADHD 2.0 is out today!
Ned's longtime writing partner, Dr. John Ratey, joins him for a conversation about the latest research they uncovered including how the brain's "default mode network" is especially dangerous for those with ADHD, why "ADHD" is a terrible term and we should call it "VAST" instead, and how finding the right amount of difficult can help you stay engaged in a task.
They also discuss the role the cerebellum plays in regulating our attention, how exercise can help with symptoms, why ADHDers are more susceptible to addiction in all forms, and the importance of connection.
