They will receive brain stimulation using transcranial direct current stimulation. It consists of very small electrical currents which will be placed over a frontal part of your brain to boost the learning effect in the computer game by giving your brain an extra “push”.This technique has been around for more than 20 years, it is completely safe, has no side effects and is used in many other patient groups.
 
This study will help to develop a new treatment for ADHD that is not reliant on pharmacological medication but on the patients’ own training of their attention and self-control skills with the extra help of some brain stimulation.
