    The thalamus not only temporarily stores but enhances sensory information, shows study

    Every day, we constantly absorb information through our sensory organs, which the brain then needs to process correctly. The information initially reaches the main relay centre, the thalamus, and then travels to the cerebral cortex. The neurons in the so-called higher-order thalamus form the connecting lines between both areas of the brain. Prior to this, their role in sensory processing was unknown. Scientists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) have shown for the first time in an animal model that they enhance and temporarily store sensory information: http://bit.ly/ScienceDailythalamusresearch

    October is ADHD Awareness Month

    The theme for this year’s ADHD Awareness Month across Europe is ‘Women and girls with ADHD’. A recent statement by NICE highlighted that females with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder are frequently diagnosed late or not at all. This is because they may not display classic symptoms and, for example, be less disruptive at school, the new draft NICE guidance says.
