And furthermore, when the Dopamine circuits, Dopamine they mean incentive motivation attention chemical, which we supplement with Ritalin or Dexedrine later on if we diagnose these people, those Dopamine circuits don’t develop well when the environment is totally stressed.

No wonder you’re going to have more children with troubled brains.
