Understanding ADHD4 January 2017
Congratulations to Professor Anita Thapar, from the School of Medicine, who received a CBE for services to child and adolescent psychiatry in the New Year’s Honours list. Her research focuses on the origins, development and complications of neurodevelopmental disorders and has a specific interest in the contribution/interplay of early environmental exposures and genetic risks.
In this film Claire Sanders who has a daughter with severe ADHD asks Professor Thapar about her work, the balance between genetic and environmental causes of the condition and the treatments available.
