Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is One of the Most Common Pathologies for Children

teenagers under 14 suffer from this disease

According to various data, up to 30% of children and teenagers under 14 suffer from this disease. What is this and what does cognitive training have to do with it?

Let’s make it clear: what is ADHD and where does it come from? The answer to the first question is probably obvious. It is a state where the child is very active, but not attentive. Why? As pediatricians love to say, everything comes from childhood. From early childhood, or rather, from pregnancy, in this case.

Statistics show that one in every two pregnancies (and in some cases more frequently) has a pathology.

Pathology of pregnancy is, first of all, a lack of oxygen for the future child, which affects his brain.

The brain “orders” the rest of the body to look for the missing oxygen, that is, to be more active in response to lack of oxygen. Increased activity is the body’s defensive reaction — it’s also hyperactivity. On the other hand, when there is a lack of oxygen, the brain does not have enough ‘fuel’ for productive work, which leads to a lack of attention. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.

The brain develops with age, gradually compensating for hypoxia and reducing the severity of the syndrome. Hyperactivity disappears first. Therefore, by the age of 5-6 years, the child becomes more manageable and for some minutes he becomes able to concentrate.

Deficit of attention is a more “subtle” disorder, which can remain until adulthood without correction. Different approaches are used to correct attention deficit. Cognitive training occupies a special place among non-pharmaceutical ones. A person’s blood supply improves in the hippocampus area during such training, and the skill to concentrate arbitrary attention is developed during cognitive training based on brain-computer technology (Neurochat).
