2010 Presentation at St. Joseph’s Hospital

Tags: ,

Dr. Brunner reviewed the growing evidence supporting a new kind of evidence-based treatment for ADHD-like problems with attention, focusing, and working memory. Dr. Brunner presented to an audience composed of fellow behavioral health professionals, parents, and physicians. He reviewed the scientific evidence behind a new class of treatments called “cognitive rehabiliation” techniques that use computer technology and brain science to exploit the neuroscientific principle of “neuroplasiticity”. This idea behind this term is if the brain os forced to focus on and carry out activities it is traditionally weak with, those cognitive skills can be improved. Data suggesting longer-term improvements was discussed as well. This was a free lecture offered to the community at large.
