What is AD/HD?
The memory of what you encounter goes into one part of the brain. Men are given a problem to consider and they use one area of the brain. Women are given the same problem and use multiple areas. The normal brain uses both its halves to learn skills. If a child's entire one half of his/her brain were removed, he/she would still learn to read, write, and speak. The brain is not a homogeneous mass, but an organ with specific functional areas.
Through the study of anatomy, research using electrodes to stimulate the brain in patients with tumors, etc., removing certain sections of the brain, a variety of different functions have been found to have specific locations in the brain. The specifics of how the brain fulfills its functions and advances in technology have led to detailed information about the brain.
Functional techniques show where activity is taking place in the brain while the person performs different tasks, thinks about different things, or is presented with different stimuli. This shows the difference between AD/HD and Non AD/HD brain function,
