Dr. Karen Wilson is our featured speaker for November. She writes this about her presentation: "Contrary to what many believe, the brain is not fully finished developing until approximately age 25, and the brain continues to do some “fine-tuning” in adulthood, particularly in those areas associated with executive functioning. In this session, Dr. Karen Wilson, a clinical neuropsychologist, will discuss executive functioning issues associated with AD/HD and the relationship between executive functioning, risk-taking, and mood."
