Card Game Sheds Light on ADHD

A research team at a University in Adelaide, Australia recently studied the brain activity of children with ADHD to try and determine why they have such difficulty remembering. While playing a card game called "Snap" patients with ADHD, who were off their medication, had to recognize when two of the same cards appeared in a row.
"...but we found that children diagnosed with ADHD had incredible difficulty detecting doubles at all, news.com.au quoted lead researcher, PhD student Hannah Keage, as saying. 'They just weren't able to select that information about the cards properly and hold it online in their head,' she added."
Other tests showed that children were unable to recognize distractions as distractions. Read more at News.sawf.org.
