Monitoring cognitive effects of childhood ADHD using diffuse optical tomography (Conference Presentation)

Paper Abstract

Childhood Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder whose symptoms include the inability to focus, impulsivity, and extremely active behavior. Advanced Test of Attention (ATA) is used to diagnose ADHD by measuring the patient’s impulse rate, average response rate, standard deviation rate, and omission rate during visual and auditory stimulation. However, ATA metrics are often skewed due to long task times and level of difficulty. We recruited healthy and ADHD children to monitor their performance during ATA. This work highlights diffuse optical tomography’s capability in providing cerebral perfusion changes to supplement ATA results for monitoring the cognitive effects of ADHD.
