Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in a wide variety of cognitive and behavioural processes, including motivation, reward, motor control and attention. Abnormalities of the dopamine system have been observed in a number of neurological land psychiatric disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, substance abuse and ADHD. In her research, Anouk Schrantee uses MRI imaging techniques to test the age-dependent effects of stimulant treatment on the dopamine system of children and adults diagnosed with ADHD.
