University students are using ‘Mario Kart 64’ to help ADHD patients focus

Engineering students at Philadelphia’s Villanova University have come up with a system to improve focus in ADHD patients using a combination of Mario Kart 64 and real-time neurological data. The students captured neurofeedback data of ADHD patients when they played Mario Kart 64. As the player’s focus level changes, the speed of the kart changes accordingly. This means the better their attention/focus level, the faster the kart goes.

Thanks to MarioCheated for the heads up!
