It won’t come as a surprise to most people to hear that ADHD is one of the most prevalent conditions affecting the youth of today but just how should we go about treating this neurological disorder? Research on the condition began back in the mid-1970’s when a scientist known as J.F. Lubar began studying the effects of neurofeedback on patients with ADHD. His research turned up quite a bit of interesting information and now, many years later, scientists and research organizations are using his findings in conjunction with modern technology to develop the most effective treatment methods for patients who are suffering from ADHD.

One of the organizations is known as Neurocore and they are dedicated to ensuring they develop the best treatment methods for people who are suffering from ADHD. Their methods seem to be working rather well as over three-fourths of all the patients they’ve treated have experienced a significant reduction in symptoms and over half of them no longer meet the qualifications of a patient with ADHD. Using something known as Qeeg technology, they’ve been able to study the brainwaves of patients with this condition to try and determine the inherent cause of ADHD in order to better treat them.

In recent years, many scientists have done thorough research on the condition and found that it tends to be a hereditary trait passed on from generation to another. They’ve also found out that there are three different types of the condition. The first one is characterized by a lack of ability to keep focus. The second one is characterized by an inability to control one’s impulses and the last one is merely a combination of the first two subcategories. Especially considering ADHD can last well into adulthood, Neurocore understands the importance of attempting to treat the condition as effectively as possible. They’ve also found that the condition typically consists of an excessive number of theta waves whereas the beta waves are found to be rather lacking. So we wish them the best of luck in their future research and hope they are successful in finding a cure.
