New Test for Diagnosing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
Date:8/27/2013

ffects of head injuries, and monitoring the brain during surgery. To diagnose ADHD, the NEBA calculates the ratio between theta (slow) and beta (fast) brain waves. The researchers found that beta waves are higher than normal in those with ADHD. Their research continues as plans are underway to extend its capabilities to diagnosing depression and dementia.

The research for the NEBA was done with 275 youths between the ages of 6 and 17 years who displayed, but had not been treated for, attention or behavioral problems. A group of ADHD experts reviewed test results derived from using the criteria in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV), behavioral questionnaires and testing, and physical examinations to arrive at a consensus diagnosis of whether ADHD was present or not. There was a 61% agreement among the doctors when using the standard tests for ADHD, and this increased to 88% when the NEBA device was included.

NEBA testing does have its skeptics though. Dr. Andrew Adesman, chief of developmental and behavioral pediatrics at Steven & Alexandra Cohen Children's Medical Center in New Hyde Park, New York stated, "For clinicians and researchers interested in ADHD, an objective diagnostic test that is accurate, sensitive and specific has been one of the 'holy grails' which has long been sought. It is doubtful that this EEG test newly approved by the FDA will be as accurate and reliable as clinicians and families would ideally want. Although this new EEG test may prove helpful to clinicians, neither parents nor professionals will be able to rely upon it as a standalone 'litmus test' for whether a child has ADHD." Adesman also points out that the NEBA device may fare no better than the other “objective” diagnostic tests for ADHD t
