Bringing Advocacy, Hope and Cure for Metabolic and Mental Disorders. Donate !
The European Mental and Metabolism Association (EMMA) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded in 1996 and officialised in July 2007. The scope of this essentially European, but also International, Association is to advocate reliable, valid and independent biomedical research, and bring the hope for a cure, in the field of Mental and Metabolic diseases.
"It is estimated that between 1 and 1.5 percent of children have ADHD, meaning that it's very likely to find at least one ADHD kid in a classroom of 25 to 30 children." ADHD does not restrict to childhood: it expands into adolescence, and has a significant impact in adults. Recent studies estimate that 30 to 70 percent of ADHD children continue to exhibit symptoms in the adult years. The impact of ADHD on modern society is indeed relevant. Early and accurate diagnosis of ADHD is thus crucial to ensure one's overall quality of life. Any improvement in the diagnostic process might be relevant for the clinical practice. EMMA presents few projects to perform basic ADHD research on biological causes, novel diagnostic tools, and new innovative therapy. GO to the tracking webpage of the Gambling project (2013-2014) !!!
Animal research is brave, not cruel, science! Read! Look how research on lab rodents is relevant for health of developing humans ...

A major and ultimate goal of EMMA is to foster Behavioral Science (with a focus on NeuroEthics, the scientific study of behavior how it is) as well as Ethical Phylosophy (with a focus on BioEthics, the study of behavior how it should be).
EMMA follows all new issues that arise nowadays when facing: 1) new symptoms of mental disease ('odd' behavior to be 'morally judged') and 2) new challenges offered by bio-technology (for 'taking of decisions').
