    Sigi Hale, PhD
    Advisor

    Graduate and Professor of Neuroscience at UCLA. Sigi’s interest in both art and science compelled him as a neuroscientist to explore how the brain transitions between states that are amenable to analytic-procedural versus integrative-creative types of operations. His work suggests ADHD cannot be traceable to a single cause, but rather multiple factors that diminish the functioning and/or utilization of a task-oriented brain network.
