Gene variants implicated in ADHD identify attention, language

Gene variants implicated in ADHD identify attention, language | AIHCP Magazine, Articles & Discussions | Scoop.it
Are deficits in attention limited to those with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or is there a spectrum of attention function in the general population? The answer to this question has implications for psychiatric diagnoses and perhaps for society, broadly. New work suggests that there is a spectrum of attention, hyperactivity/impulsiveness and language function in society, with varying degrees of these impairments associated with clusters of genes linked with the risk for ADHD.

Does Being 'Spiritual But Not Religious' Really Mean Anything?

Does Being 'Spiritual But Not Religious' Really Mean Anything? | AIHCP Magazine, Articles & Discussions | Scoop.it
The self-defined "unaffiliated" are apt not to reject science's promise of knowledge based on evidence but, rather, to embrace it, says commentator Adam Frank.
American Institute Health Care Professionals's insight:

The classic contrast of spiritual versus religious is portrayed in this article.  I feel it does mean something because for an overall healthy spiritual life I think we need to be both individually spiritual and socially religious. Some may differ and in some cases some religions are not very social or require that religious element of dogma, etc, but I would think Christianity would need both elements of private and public life
