Summary
In Tonic, Dr. Norman Swan leads a team of reporters who cover all aspects of health, from lifestyle to complementary medicines to the most recent medical discoveries. Topics covered in this episode include: *Training the Working Memory in ADHD: Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a common condition that affects people's ability to complete tasks and stay focused. Parents of children with ADHD are driven nuts by their impulsivity and inability to control their own behavior. World-leading researchers from Sweden are training "working memory" in those affected, using video game technology as a mental gymnasium to ensure children with poor attention span can stick to training tasks. They've also looked at whether learning to play a musical instrument can help to increase attention span and improve working memory-and they've had some interesting results. Dr. Norman Swan sits down with the team leading the research at the Karolinska Institute in Sweden.
