Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a common and prevalent condition seen in all ages and throughout the world. School-aged and college-aged students seem to have the most difficulty in terms of academic performance, social functioning, and adaptive functioning. Visual attention and visual search are important aspects of attention. Visual attention drives what and how the brain processes and interprets information from the environment. Visual search is the ability to find a visual target within a set of distractors. Electroencephalography (EEG) Neurofeedback is the process of re-training brainwaves through operant conditioning. Neurofeedback (NF) has been suggested to be a non-invasive alternative treatment for ADHD symptoms in school-aged children. However, not enough research has been conducted on the effects of NF training on college-aged students’ visual search abilities. Thus, this study will investigate the effects of right and left hemisphere NF protocols on visual search distractibility.
