About The Meeting:

In the mental health field, a long-time lament has been: "There's no blood test."

 
To confirm the presence of a disorder. Or tell one from another. Or gauge how well a treatment is working.
 
This is doubly true with ADHD, where diagnostic boundaries are constantly in dispute. And where standard testing can cost a bundle.
 
Could a simple, inexpensive tool -- tracking eye motion -- make a difference?
 
For more, hear Dr. Jun Maruta of the NYC-based Brain Trauma Foundation. He'll compare the "signatures" of three conditions: ADHD, sleep deprivation, and life after a concussion.
