    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"
