Aristotle was the first philosopher to define the term thesis.

Structure[ edit ] A thesis or dissertation may be arranged as a thesis by publication or a monographwith or without appended papers, respectively, though many graduate programs allow candidates to submit a curated collection of published papers.
When the meaning of a word and its color are congruent, such as the word "BLUE" written in blue color, it is easy to recognize the actual color of the word. But when the meaning of the word is incongruent with the color, such as "BLUE" written in red color, it creates a conflict between the color and the word's meaning.
The "conflict" between two brain processes are word-recognition and color-recognition.
This conflict requires extra processing time for the brain to resolve. Most people will recognize the meaning of the word before recognizing the color.
In order to name the color correctly, the two processes compete for the final decision-making process. This inhibition requires "selective attention" attentional focus to inhibit the competing conflicting process. The error in recognizing the correct color when a conflict is present is associated with the "impulsivity" that the brain is unable to suppress.
ADHD subjects often take much longer time than normal subjects to resolve the conflicts and make more errors due to the insufficient inhibition in the brain circuitry to suppress the ongoing competing processes. The impulsivity in ADHD patients is due to the insufficient inhibition exerted by the brain circuitry in the prefrontal cortex of the brain that is responsible for executive function in decision making.
This inhibition in the prefrontal cortex is mediated by the neurotransmitter dopamine. Pharmcological treatment of ADHD symptoms is restoring the level of dopamine, which results in reducing the impulsivity by increasing the inhibition control in the prefrontal cortex.Fantastic chapter pages.
