Results posted from a recent clinical trial showed that certain video games can help children who suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
A company named Akili developed the tailor-made video game and plans to file for regulatory approval with the U.S Food And Drug Administration.
With ADHD cases on the rise in the U.S, people are looking for ways other than prescription pills to treat the disorder. Akili's product takes a different approach by using a game to stimulate specific cognitive neural systems in the brain.
According to the CDC, 11 percent of American children suffer from the disorder. Three out of four of those children are put on some sort of medication that can cause sleep issues, stomach aches and other side effects.
