WM training in college students with ADHD

Research institution: University of Toronto

Researchers: Rosemary Tannock, Ph.D., Rachel Gropper, Reena Kronitz

Training program used in research: Cogmed QM

Status: Ongoing

The overall objective of the current study is to determine whether computerized WM training will enhance WM capacity in college students with ADHD. There are three additional objectives. The first is to determine whether improvements in WM will generalize to secondary outcome tasks, such as inhibitory control and planning. The second objective is to examine whether WM training will also ameliorate ADHD symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity. The last objective is to investigate whether improvements will be maintained at a three month follow-up period.
