Pope, Alan T.; Bogart, Edward H.
Child Study Journal, v26 n1 p39-50 1996
Describes the Extended Attention Span Training (EAST) system for modifying attention deficits, which takes the concept of biofeedback one step further by making a video game more difficult as the player's brain waves indicate that attention is waning. Notes contributions of this technology to neuropsychology and neurology, where the emphasis is on cautious, conservative treatment of children with attention disorders. (HTH)
