ADHD basis - 1 line

ADHD is 'cured' by amphetamine due to increased resistance to dopamine through increased sensitivty to information wrt NONADD.

The amphetamine isn't the solution - it's reversing resistance into sensitivity by retracting from information overload.

Re: ADHD basis - 1 line

But there's no real point in stating there's no cure unless it's explained why.
We're in the midst of the emergence of a novel type of neocortical neurocircuit - all worked up in the literature. This represents - and it's not going away - information centric man.


Attention grabbed by information - sensitivity to information.


And when we're information-centric - our reward system is required to be similarly re-oriented.
Meaning that we can not just do things (the things people do) - for money/power ie greed - to get on ... ... ...


Completely capable of doing anything as long as our mind wants to.
