The (Incredibly Creamy) Face Of ADHD

Original picture heading:
Best look yet into disorder could pave way for therapies.

From a rather clinical RedNova News article presenting new discoveries that ADHD brains have smaller frontal and temporal lobes, regions involved not only in the control of attention but also in regions involved in impulse control. Not clear what the picture has to do with ADHD, or indeed with the article itself, which contains no mention whatsoever of torturing small girls by tying their hands behind their backs and forcing them to eat Cool Whip.

Bonus: In reporting that The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that 3 to 6 percent of American schoolchildren are affected by ADHD at one time or another, the article seems to suggest that ADHD can be / is temporary for some kids. Huh?

(Thanks to Fark for the link).
