LITERALLY more internal WIRES!?
So still on Retrosplenial Cortex, which seems key to ‘something’.
A search for Retrosplenial Cortex ADHD got me:
“Insula-Retrosplenial Cortex Overconnectivity Increases Internalizing via Reduced Insight in Autism”
“Reduced Insight” – which is a silly phrase – means an inability to see one’s self as having a problem when others around you think you do. It’s a social issue (being out of step with common opinion). That said, defined positively? yeah, I can see what they mean.
AND, prematurity results in neuronal overgrowth – overconnectivity – generally, because the neural development is sped up exponentially being out of the womb and having to deal with world-stuff instead of being in the womb developing at the normal slower pace swimming in fluid.
[internalizing means keeping things to yourself. It can be a rich internal landscape or anxiety/depression/etc or some combination of things that’s generally invisible to outsiders]
