Joint publication by Alexandra Philipsen, University of Bonn, and David Coghill, University of Melbourne

Prof Alexandra Philipsen from the Department of Psychiatry and Psychotherapy at the University of Bonn and Prof David Coghill from the Royal Children’s Hospital and the Department of Paediatrics and Psychiatry at the University of Melbourne, published a joint publication in the journal Borderline Personality Disorder and Emotion Dysregulation. The review article focuses on a potential role for physical exercise in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and on the neurophysiological mechanisms assumed to underlie the beneficial effects of exercise. 

Prof Philipsen attended the 1st BM-AXIS meeting in Melbourne in October 2018 during which she had the opportunity to have face-to-face meetings with Prof Coghill to discuss their joint projects.
