Effect of pshychotropic medications on the developing brain
Psychotropic medication is often described to treat psychiatric disorders. This kind of medication is generally thought to act by adjusting neurochemical imbalances in the brain, thereby normalising perception, mood, consciousness and/or specific behaviours. It is thougt that when these drugs are given at relatively young ages they may interfere with or alter ongoing brain development and may have long-lasting effects into adulthood. Michelle Solleveld investigates the lasting effects of psychotropic medications used in ADHD and depression.
