Abstract: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common neurodevelopmental disorders amongst children of the developed world. The main symptoms of the disorder include hyperactivity, inattention and impulsivity. Psychotropic stimulants are considered the first line treatment option. Although effective, they are associated with negative side effects. A recently proposed non-pharmacological intervention for ADHD is loud (>70 dBA) acoustic white noise, a random signal with equal i... more
