Controversy surrounds Dr. Daniel Amen's 7 types of ADD â€” each with its own unique ADHD symptoms, brain function, and neurotransmitter activity.

For over twenty years, Iâ€™ve used SPECT brain scans (along with other diagnostic techniques) to develop individual, targeted treatment plans for each patient. Early on, I discovered through brain SPECT patterns that attention deficit is not a single or a simple disorder.
