Episode 197: ADHD – paying attention to the evidence

In episode 197, James and Mike bring in our good friend and colleague Adil Virani to help us to discuss the issue of ADHD. In this first part we discuss the diagnosis and try to focus on the concept of improving function rather than necessarily improving ADHD symptoms. At the end we all lose focus but realize this is exactly what has happened in the previous 196 episodes.
