New studies on Ritalin and Alzheimer's Disease highlight ACNP Annual Meeting

WHAT: Hundreds of new studies on brain and behavior from the world's most renowned scientists will headline the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology's 2004 Annual Meeting. Presentations include new studies on the effects of early Ritalin exposure on normal brains and the top smells than can predict Alzheimer's Disease.

SELECTED STUDIES INCLUDE:

  • Early Ritalin Exposure May Have Long-Term Effects on the Brain: Animal study suggests that the misdiagnosis of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) combined with Ritalin use in children may lead to a higher risk of developing depressive symptoms in adulthood.

  • Lemons, Lilac Among Top 10 Smells That Could Predict Alzheimer's Disease: Finds that for patients with minimal to mild cognitive impairment, a 10-smell odor identification is a better predictor of Alzheimer's Disease than brain imaging tests and standard memory tests.

WHO: ACNP, founded in 1961, is a professional organization of more than 700 leading scientists, including four Nobel Laureates. The mission of ACNP is to further research and education in neuropsychopharmacology and related fields in the following ways: promoting the interaction of a broad range of scientific disciplines of brain and behavior in order to advance the understanding of prevention and treatment of disease of the nervous system including psychiatric, neurological, behavioral and addictive disorders; encouraging scientists to enter research careers in fields related to these disorders and their treatment; and ensuring the dissemination of relevant scientific advances.
