7 Types of ADD, Brain SPECT Scan, Psycho-Nutritional, Neurotransmitter and Hormonal Therapy

Dr Edward Chan , Yap Kah Hui

Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADD/ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental psychological disorder. People with ADHD commonly display significant problems in executive functions. It has been suggested that underlying abnormalities in the brain contribute to ADHD (Amen, 2001). Seven types of ADD/ADHD were classified based on the symptoms and brain spectroscopy (SPECT) scans; different types of ADD/ADHD were attributed to different areas of brain atrophy and over-activation/inactivation. Several mechanisms and theories will be discussed: Neurotransmitters, Hormones, and Stress.
