A major research project from Aarhus University and the Centre for Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Risskov, in collaboration with the University of Copenhagen, University of Nottingham (CANDAL, Institute of Mental Health) and Kings College London has been published in the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.  

The fifth conference of the Centre for ADHD and Neurodevelopmental Disorders Across the Lifespan (CANDAL) was held on 16th May 2018. The conference was attended by delegates from a range of backgrounds and settings, including healthcare and education professionals, people with lived experience of ADHD and other neurodevelopmental conditions; scientists and graduate researchers.

The Institute has brought together researchers, clinicians and people with lived experience of ADHD to help promote better understanding of the condition at its annual engagement conference.

CANDAL showcased an ‘in my shoes experience’ developed by Shire and supported by CANDAL members Professor David Daley and Blandine French.

At the upcoming Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition 2018, researchers from The University of Nottingham and University College London will be presenting a new, prototype quantum brain scanner that can measure ‘brain waves’ with unprecedented accuracy.

Young children with mild attention problems can go unnoticed at primary school and fall behind their peers academically, according to research involving CANDAL.

Research carried out by Professor David Daley, director of CANDAL, has been featured in a new report published by the think tank Demos and highlighted in the national media.

Demos looked at the economic and social impact of undiagnosed attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in their Your Attention Please 2018 report.
