Your Brain on ADHD: Understanding Neurotransmitters in Daily Experience

David NowellYour Brain on ADHD: Understanding Neurotransmitters in Daily Experience
With Dr. David Nowell, PhD
Thursday, October 10, 2013 11:00am – 1:00pm EDT

Adults with ADHD are curious people, and many of us want to understand how our ADHD brains work differently. You may already know that the brain’s chemical messenger (neurotransmitter) associated with reward and motivation is dopamine. But do you know what dopamine does, or what it feels like in your body? In this Master Class, Dr. David Nowell will demonstrate that once we connect the dots with our own experience, brain science is endlessly fascinating – and useful! Dr. Nowell will explain how every experience, sensation, and decision that takes place in your brain is accompanied by tiny electrical signals initiated by chemical communication between brain cells. This information is extremely important to adults with ADHD, because you – the individual person behind all these messages – can take charge of these experiences when you know a bit about your unique brain and how it functions and (sometimes) dysfunctions.

In this Master Class, you’ll:

  1. Explore the science of neurotransmitters and ADHD in practical, easy-to-understand language and examples
  2. Relate neurotransmitters (dopamine, serotonin, GABA) to your actual living experience
  3. Learn the specific roles of neurotransmitters in human cognition and emotion
  4. Identify two of your specific body-states associated with dopamine, and understand the function of dopamine as it relates to reward and motivation
  5. Initiate a plan to take charge of your brain immediately!
