The upside of failure and ADHD

The upside of failure and ADHD

The upside of failure and ADHD Editor’s Note: How often do you feel like a failure? If you’re like most of us, plenty of times. Now how many times have you celebrated your failures? A great moment about the positive side of failure is in the cartoon, Meet the Robinsons. When our hero spectacularly fails to fix an invention, his friends aren’t mad, instead they celebrate. For, as they explain,…

Disequilibrium
When a child is born their brain already contains a finely sculpted network of brain cells connected in a predetermined pattern. This is achieved by balancing the rate of brain cell growth against cell death. To understand this researchers studied SORCS2, a gene that intriguingly has opposing roles in different parts of the brain. The product of this gene exists in two forms: a single long protein that regulates growth at the hand-like extremities (stained orange) of the pictured cell, and a composite of two linked segments of the protein which together control cell death. Mice lacking this gene exhibit traits very similar to attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) such as increased physical activity that is calmed by amphetamine drugs. Such a clear cut biological pathway – from gene to protein to cells to symptoms – suggests that disrupting the balance between brain cell growth and death underpins attention deficit disorders.
