RoboMemo Working Memory Training in CHADD (ADD/ ADHD)

Land­ed in Chica­go a few hours ago, and will write a longer update dur­ing the week­end on what is going on here with Cogmed Work­ing Mem­o­ry Train­ing, RoboMemo, one of the most sol­id (but demand­ing) Brain Fit­ness Pro­grams we have come across.

Today we met the Swedish team and most of the 15 US-based clin­i­cians who have start­ed to offer RoboMemo to their patients with work­ing mem­o­ry deficits-a con­di­tion in many kids and adults with ADD/ADHD.

We heard great research pre­sen­ta­tions, includ­ing pre­lim­i­nary find­ings from a repli­ca­tion study done in by Bradley Gib­son at NotreDame Uni­ver­si­ty (he and his team are doing very inter­est­ing work on cog­ni­tive train­ing of exec­u­tive func­tions), and great sto­ries and data from a great col­lec­tion of clin­i­cal pro­fes­sion­als, from pedi­a­tri­cians to neu­ropsy­chol­o­gists and child psy­chi­a­trists, who are intro­duc­ing this pro­gram in the US.

    Per­haps brain train­ing should be per­formed under light.
