What helps boost concentration? -- with guest Stephen Faraone, PhD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

An expert in attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder explores that topic, with an answer likely to disappoint people hoping for an instant, effortless edge in brain power. Stephen Faraone, PhD, also discusses supplements that claim to boost brain function. Faraone is a Distinguished Professor and vice chair of research of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Upstate.
