ACTIVATE: A Computerized Training Program for Children With ADHD

2015-09-30 08:38:23 | BioPortfolio

Summary

A preliminary clinical trial of ACTIVATE will be conducted in a sample of children with ADHD. ACTIVATE is a computerized neurocognitive training program (ACTIVATE; see: www.c8sciences.com) that simultaneously targets eight core neurocognitive factors (i.e., sustained attention, working memory (WM), response inhibition, speed of information processing, cognitive flexibility and control, multiple simultaneous attention, category formation, and pattern recognition and inductive thinking).

Description

In an open clinical trial, ACTIVATE, a computer-based neurocognitive intervention will be evaluated to determine its effectiveness in improving symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and related impairments. ACTIVATE is a computerized neurocognitive training program (ACTIVATE; see: www.c8sciences.com) that simultaneously targets eight core neurocognitive factors (i.e., sustained attention, working memory (WM), response inhibition, speed of information processing, cognitive flexibility and control, multiple simultaneous attention, category formation, and pattern recognition and inductive thinking). Youth between the ages of 7-11 will be recruited and assessed for ADHD and assigned to the ACTIVATE intervention. Assessment of outcomes will occur before, weekly during treatment, immediately post-treatment, 3- and 6-month follow up periods.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A set of cognitive functions that controls complex, goal-directed thought and behavior. Executive function involves multiple domains, such as CONCEPT FORMATION, goal management, cognitive flexibility, INHIBITION control, and WORKING MEMORY. Impaired executive function is seen in a range of disorders, e.g., SCHIZOPHRENIA; and ADHD.

Drugs that bind to and activate nicotinic cholinergic receptors (RECEPTORS, NICOTINIC). Nicotinic agonists act at postganglionic nicotinic receptors, at neuroeffector junctions in the peripheral nervous system, and at nicotinic receptors in the central nervous system. Agents that function as neuromuscular depolarizing blocking agents are included here because they activate nicotinic receptors, although they are used clinically to block nicotinic transmission.

Specialized cells that detect and transduce light. They are classified into two types based on their light reception structure, the ciliary photoreceptors and the rhabdomeric photoreceptors with MICROVILLI. Ciliary photoreceptor cells use OPSINS that activate a PHOSPHODIESTERASE phosphodiesterase cascade. Rhabdomeric photoreceptor cells use opsins that activate a PHOSPHOLIPASE C cascade.

Agents and factors that activate GTP phosphohydrolase activity.

Drugs that bind to and activate cholinergic receptors.
