ADHD , Executive Functions & Procrastination: An interesting new study
An interview with Scott Taylor who completed his undergraduate honours thesis at Carleton University. Scott studied the relations between ADHD, Executive Function and procrastination. His research is the most recent and the most rigorous study in the area. Scott explains his research and the findings, but perhaps more importantly he reflects on personal experiences that may help listeners think through the challenges of ADHD and the potential for change. In this episode, I referenced the work of Russell Barkley and his book, "Executive Functions: What they are, how they work and why they evolved" To learn more about procrastination and our research, see procrastination.ca The closing song is by singer, songwriter Matt Weidinger - check him out at mattweidinger.com
