Study: EEG-augmented brain training shows promise as first-line treatment for ADHD

Atentiv_System_PrototypeNovel Brain Training Game May Reduce Kids’ ADHD Symptoms (Medspace):

“A novel cognitive training computer game that uses a child’s own brain waves to improve concentration may reduce symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), say US researchers.

Investigators used a novel feed-forward modeling (FFM) system, which…is based on a computer cognitive training game in which attention is required to move an avatar through the game. The game was calibrated using an electroencephalogram (EEG) headband with three frontal sensors to create a model of attention and inattention states. Read the rest of this entry »
