This paper presents a novel brain-computer-interface (BCI) system that could potentially be used for enhancing the attention ability of subjects with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Online Prevention and Early Intervention in the Field of Psychiatry Using Gamification in Internet Interventions: Practical Experience with a Program Targeting Eating Disorders in Czech Republic

Gamification and serious computer games is seen to have the potential to increase user satisfaction with Internet interventions, motivation to use the programs and thus affect possible outcomes in mental health improvement and awareness.

A randomized controlled study of remote computerized cognitive, neurofeedback, and combined training in the treatment of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder

There is an increasing interest in non-pharmacological treatments for children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD), especially digital techniques that can be remotely delivered,

BCI inside a virtual reality classroom: a potential training tool for attention

This work has successfully demonstrated a non-intrusive, low-cost, and portable system targeting attention in a motivating and engaging environment.

Understanding the Effects of Stimulant Medications on Cognition in Individuals with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Decade of Progress

This work reviews the objectively measured cognitive effects that accompany the subjectively assessed clinical responses to stimulant medications and offers interpretations of the progress made over the past decade in understanding the cognitive effects of stimulant medication on individuals with ADHD.

Computerized training of working memory in children with ADHD--a randomized, controlled trial.

This study shows that WM can be improved by training in children with ADHD, and this training also improved response inhibition and reasoning and resulted in a reduction of the parent-rated inattentive symptoms of ADHD.

Putting brain training to the test

Although improvements were observed in every one of the cognitive tasks that were trained, no evidence was found for transfer effects to untrained tasks, even when those tasks were cognitively closely related.

A pilot study of combined working memory and inhibition training for children with AD/HD

The potential for cognitive training that concurrently targets the interrelated processes of WM and inhibition to be used as a treatment for AD/HD is indicated.

Effects of stimulant medication on growth rates across 3 years in the MTA follow-up.

Stimulant-naïve school-age children with Combined type attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder were, as a group, larger than expected from norms before treatment but show stimulant-related decreases in growth rates after initiation of treatment, which appeared to reach asymptotes within 3 years without evidence of growth rebound.

EEG From a Single-Channel Dry-Sensor Recording Device

The results suggest that the portable device has potential utility in certain EEG recording situations where ease of use is a priority and a reduction in relative theta power and an increase in relative alpha power in EC compared to EO resting conditions is predicted.

Neurocognitive training for children with and without AD/HD

The results suggest that combined WM/IC training can result in improved behavioural control for children with and without AD/HD.

Efficacy of Neurofeedback Treatment in ADHD: The Effects on Inattention, Impulsivity and Hyperactivity: A Meta-Analysis

It is concluded that neurofeedback treatment for ADHD can be considered “Efficacious and Specific” (Level 5) with a large ES for inattention and impulsivity and a medium ES for hyperactivity.
