A brainwave test for ADHD?

Researchers have used EEG measurements to detect mind-wandering, or the change from one thought to another. The study lead author, Julia Kam, said, “This could help detect thought patterns linked to a spectrum of psychiatric and attention disorders and may help diagnose them.”

Could this be a step towards a definitive ADHD test? If so, this could be a real help.

It may not be the first such study, but each one builds up the knowledge about our brains.


I’m guessing that when I had neurotherapy which which basically was meditation with eeg probes on my head for feedback it might have been doing some sort of early version of this … of course I’m typing before I read the article but why should I stop myself?
