12/11/2021
Shelly-Ann McMorris

Purpose of Research
To examine the extent to which cranial electrotherapy stimulation increases auditory attention, visual attention, and sleep quality in adults diagnosed with ADHD in the Niagara Region of Ontario, Canada. 

Who Can Participate? To participate, you must have a  prior diagnosis of ADHD from a doctor or psychologist. You will receive a $42.00 Walmart gift card for your participation.

What is involved? Visit Skerrett Psychology Professional Corporation in Fort Erie to complete a short computer-based measure of attention and answer some questions regarding your sleep. You will be provided with an Alpha-Stim (CES) device to use for one hour  each day, for five weeks. The devices are easy-to-use, by attaching clips  to your earlobes while you complete regular household activities. The  amount of electricity in the device is so small that you will not feel it.  Each participant will also be asked to complete a daily log to keep track  of the timing of each CES treatment and sleep hours.

Location of Study: Niagara Region, Ontario
