Date:4/18/2013

LOS ANGELES, April 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- NeuroSigma, Inc., a California-based medical device company, today announced that the results of the first-ever pediatric clinical trial of external Trigeminal Nerve stimulation (eTNS™) for the treatment of attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) will be presented at the American Psychiatric Association annual meeting in San Francisco on May 20, 2013.  The clinical trial was conducted at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) with funding provided by NeuroSigma.

The results will be presented by James McGough , M.D., M.S., principal investigator for the study and Professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior and David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, and director of clinical teaching programs in both Child and Adolescent Psychopharmacology and ADHD at UCLA.  Dr. McGough is a leading researcher in the field and has worked to understand ADHD's causes and develop new treatments for nearly two decades.
