There was an episode of Radiolab about another neurodegenerative disease, Progressive Aphasia, and how it affected to the creativity of some people. : https://www.wnycstudios.org/story/unraveling-bolero

I'm quite surprised the article makes no comparison to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), also a dopaminergic condition affecting executive function, which can positively affect creativity.

Can you explain this further? What are positive benefits of ADHD on creativity? Ive never heard of this.
