While there are a number of drugs to treat Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), they can have some pretty serious side effects. Researchers in Singapore at the country’s Institute of Mental Health (IMH), Duke-NUS (National University of Singapore) Medical School, and A*STAR (Agency for Science, Technology and Research), have developed a system that combines neuromonitoring with video games to help kids improve their ADHD symptoms. Neeuro Pte Ltd. is a local company that has been spun off to commercialize the technology.

 

So far, a randomized controlled trial of the prototype of the technology was successfully conducted in the lab, but now the more mature version of the technology is being offered to a select group of kids to take home.

 

The system consists of Neeuro’s electroencephalography “SenzeBand” along with a Samsung tablet. The child simply puts on the band and fires up a video game called CogoLand. The system can track the mental focus that the child is currently experiencing, and can adjust the gameplay, as well as bring up prompts accordingly.

 

In the above mentioned study, children who underwent training using the system showed improvements in brain areas dedicated to attention and task-orientation, as was confirmed using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).
