USA today did an article about a videogame based treatment for ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). It uses NASA derived technology to measure brainwave activity while playing videogames. It hooks up to your PlayStation console, so you’ll just be playing your favorite games with a twist…

Clinical psychologist Henry Owens says ‘If they just play videogames on their own, they will zone out. When they play on this system, if they zone out [as detected by brainwave activity], the videogame doesn’t respond any more’ This is supposed to help the patient increase the ability to focus and concentrate.” Visit the Smart Brain Games website here.
