CogniFit Launches a Specific Brain Training for ADHD

r. These tasks require that we ignore things happening in our environment and that we suppress thoughts in our minds that are irrelevant to what we have to do. If we do not inhibit (ignore and suppress) the irrelevant information, it will sidetrack us and prevent us from reaching our goals.

Another issue with ADD and ADHD is the difficulty to stay focused over a long time span. Because they cannot inhibit processing irrelevant information and thoughts, individuals with ADD or ADHD cannot learn the mechanisms of staying focused on a task. While trying to focus, they are continually distracted by irrelevant thoughts and information which they cannot suppress. In normally growing children and youths, attention span (time during which we are able to concentrate on the same task) increases with age, practice and experience. Attention span also increases in individuals with ADD/ADHD, but in their case, because they fail inhibiting distractions, this increase is often minimal and insufficient to enable them to perform home, school and work tasks. Tasks performed under optimal focus become errorless. Individuals who can focus learn to monitor their work and avoid "careless" errors.

In the case of attention, CogniFit has developed tasks that help us increase the duration of our attention span. The ultimate goal of such a task is to increase the time spent adhering to the task while processing only relevant information and ignoring distractions that are irrelevant to the task. CogniFit has also developed tasks to train shifting which is another known cognitive issue of ADD and ADHD.

Ignacio Sanchez, Development Manager at CogniFit, explains: “Adding specific cognitive trainings such as ADHD is a new step for the brain fitness industry. Consumers can now decide to train on their specific concerns and needs. The CogniFit platform is now technologically equipped with a capaci
