Today's Globe: Biotech Council, bipolar boom, Ashby school, executive function

The diagnosis of bipolar disorder in children and adolescents has risen fortyfold since 1994, according to a new study released yesterday. But researchers partly attributed the dramatic rise to doctors overdiagnosing the serious psychiatric disorder.
