FDA Approves Brainwave Test to Help Diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Using EEG Waves, Math and Statistics

ADHD is difficult to diagnose and this is another tool available. The test is called the Neuropsychiatric EEG-Based Assessment Aid (NEBA). It is meant to be used in conjunction with a clinical assessment and is not a stand alone to replace that. Quantitative electroencephalography (qEEG) is the patented technology the company acquired for analyzing mood disorders and depression and I am guessing this applies here as the company is also working on mood and depression measurement systems whereby the patent is specific.
What I find also interesting is this study from a while back at PLOS One…the fear of math creates physical pain in humans too, so we have come full circle if you will and this could be mood altering too:)
