How do dopamine levels in ADHD lead to risk-taking behaviors?

How common are substance abuse disorders in those diagnosed with ADHD?

Do risk-taking behaviors caused by ADHD correlate to substance abuse?

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (ADHD)
  • Population Health
  • Social / Behavioral
  • Ancestry

Scientific Approaches

Percent of those with ADHD suffering from depression, those suffering from risk-taking behaviors, those suffering from substance abuse disorders.

Anticipated Findings

Having a better grasp on how dopamine works in the ADHD brain can provide insights into why there may be a higher percentage of those struggling with substance abuse. Not only will this help identify and prevent substance abuse disorders in those showing symptoms of ADHD, but it will also provide more of a grasp on how dopamine and motivation work together in the brain.
