That's one of the underlining problems of the disorder. The Lack of parental boundaries and the over dependence of TV and video games as baby sitters. The flashing special effects and the rapid scene changes of TV become quite afixiating to the young to the point where it is what they expect.

They've had significant development with creating video games which counter act this effect by forcing the player to focus to maintain a certain brain chemistry. They expect to release games like this soon on systems like the Wii which required high interactivity.

So do you think that because of all the special effects and stuff, when they are deprived of that, they become restless and intolerant?

What sort of games do you mean? Like games which require you to solve puzzles or things like that?

ADHD is a collection of symptoms. It exists. Whether its cause is learned behaviour, chemical imbalance, or neurological physiology - (in all likelihood it is some combination of the three in most people) - is up for debate but we've created the concept of it to help us manage a collection of symptoms and it exists by that virtue.

It think it's a complusion to be entertained...to be constantly engaged and stimulated. I look at it as a High...I have to former friends that have it and they are both screwed up from the floor up.

Nasa has been devleoping the software that trains the brain away from ADD or ADHD tendancies and the effects are remarkable. heres a link The Play Attention Solution - ADHD/ADD Answers

You can't use treatment of symptoms to imply causation saddly.

These brain signals control our computer games. Your mind becomes the mouse or joystick!

Wow. That sounds really cool. They should market that for games for non-ADHD people as well, it would be a really great experience.

@ Cleps. Yeah I'm on board that too. This do a lot of increase everyone's ability to concentrate. I must admit I have problems with concentrating on really hard drafting projects. Making decisions as to what to include and what not include. What is clear and what isn't is tough sometimes.

Treating the symptoms of a thing doesn't infer the cause. If you're shot I can give you pain killers but it doesn't imply the cause of your injury was an absence of painkiller.

Ah...but pain is a sympton are you implying that "A" in attention Deficit Disorder is only a symptom? See that's why I was confused. I thought it was the problem not the symptom.

I think its overdiagnosed, and used as an excuse too often, but yes i do believe it exists
