Can exercise help in ADHD? with guest Stephen Faraone, PhD, on Upstate's The Informed Patient podcast

Kids with ADHD can benefit from physical activity, research suggests

Physical activity can help some children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, research suggests. Psychologist Stephen Faraone, PhD, discusses what the research means, explaining the term "disinhibition," and which activities appear to be most helpful. Faraone is a Distinguished Professor and vice chair of research of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Upstate who has devoted most of his professional life to research of ADHD. He writes about ADHD research on his blog at ADHDevidence.org.
