While researching, sometimes we find resources that blow us away and change our whole view of something, and sometimes we find resources that are dry and can be tossed aside. It is important to be able to differentiate between relevant and not-relevant research when trying to analyze data.
One of the articles that I analyzed for my precis, “Do Diet & Nutrition Affect ADHD? Facts & Clinical Considerations” had the biggest influence on the direction of my research.
The reason for this is that it clarified that although diet and nutrition are relevant to ADHD, they are not directly related. The nutrients people take in on a daily basis have an effect on neurological function, therefor, having a positive impact on one’s focus and attention. Therefore, diet and nutrition do have and effect on ADHD, it is just not direct.
Another aspect of my research that has been clarified is that although we have learned a lot about the neurological disorder of ADHD, there is still a lot we don’t know and there are still a lot of unanswered questions and that it is still not completely understood. This is an important consideration in order to successfully research this topic.
