Catharina Hartman & Andreas Reif on the online channel GoToHealth Media
CoCA experts Dr. Catharina Hartman (University Medical Center Groningen, The Netherlands) and Prof. Dr. Andreas Reif (University Hospital Frankfurt, Germany) were invited by Jonathan Marx for an interview on the US-American online radio program “GoToHealth Media”. They talk about several aspects of the CoCA project: How often do comorbid conditions co-occur with ADHD? What do the genetics of ADHD comorbidities tell us? What should clinicians do to prevent or reduce these comorbidities in ADHD? You can watch the video interviews here:
New Webinar on comparable emotional dynamics in women with ADHD and BPD
In this webinar, Dr. Talar Moukhtarian from the University of Warwick (UK) talks about emotion dysregulation (ED) as a core diagnostic symptom in borderline personality disorder (BPD) and an associated feature of ADHD. She presents recent work where differences in dynamical indices of ED in the daily life of women with ADHD and BPD were investigated, using the prospective experience sampling method (ESM). She presents novel findings, using a multilevel modelling approach of ESM data, showing that ED is a valuable trans-diagnostic aspect of psychopathology in both ADHD and BPD, with similar levels of intensity and instability in both conditions.

New Webinar on executive functioning and ADHD
In this video, Dr. Lizanne Schweren discusses her work on executive functioning, a cognitive construct closely related to ADHD. Her goal is to determine which modifiable factors such as diet, physical activity, and sleep, contribute to executive functioning in people with and without ADHD.

Philip Asherson from KCL speaks about ADHD as a common mental health disorder. Click here to see video on the CoCA YouTube channel.
New Webinar on how exercise may reduce ADHD symptoms
In this webinar, Prof. Jonna Kuntsi, from King’s College London (KCL) describes how physical activity may improve the symptoms of ADHD. Click here to see video on the CoCA YouTube channel.
New Webinar on Predicting ADHD using Gene Set Polygenic Risk Scores
In this video, Eric Barnett, Prof. Faraone’s PhD student describes the initial results of applying machine learning models to genomic data. His goal is to determine if such models can improve predictive accuracy above the accuracy of polygenic risk scores and to determine if using the disorder’s comorbid with ADHD can improve the predictive accuracy of genomic data as a predictor of ADHD.

View the new webinar Implications of Psychiatric Genetics for Psychopharmacology
In this video, Dr. Faraone reviews the implications of psychiatric genetic findings for the practice of psychopharmacology for ADHD and comorbid disorders. He discusses how genomic discoveries suggest we rethink diagnostic practices and reviews data on pharmacogenetics and the implications for practicing personalized medicine. Click here to see video.

ADHD Awareness Month 2018 - Shine a light on ADHD Documentary now available
ADHD Awareness Month 2018 – Shine a light on ADHD. The video was created by Laura Ghirardi, Nicoletta Adamo, Arjan de Brower, and a number of early career researchers from the MiND consortium; it was filmed and edited by the company “4QFilms”. The project was supported by generous funds from the EU-Funded projects MiND, Aggressotype, CoCA and Eat2BeNICE.You can watch the documentary here and also read more on our blog Mind the Gap.

Paper by Martine Hoogman gets wide media feedback
A paper by Martine Hoogman from CoCA partner RUMC on ‘Subcortical brain volume differences in participants with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children and adults‘ has led to wide media feedback, which will hopefully help to reduce the stigma still attached to the disorder. The paper was covered by CNN, CBS and many more. Click here to see the a list of news reports.
