A new test to measure brain activity in kids and teens to better diagnose Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The new FDA-approved test, called the NEBA test, measures electrical impulses in the brain and analyzes the type of brain waves firing and how frequently. These measurements then help identify the presence of ADHD in kids ages 6 to 17. The NEBA test takes up to 20 minutes to complete.
The manufacturer of the test is based in Augusta, GA, and the availability the test in Arizona has not been announced.
