Okay, to this isn't to be confused with other electrode based stimulation treatments, including ECT, deep brain stimulation, transcranial magnetic stimulation or transcranial direct-current stimulation that are used for other medical issues including depression, Parkinson's disease & so on.

This is a new(er) treatment afaik which is called: Transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) and is being trialled as a treatment for ADHD.

"Transcranial random noise stimulation (tRNS) works by sending a mild electrical current to the brain through two electrodes on the scalp."

"The parents of 55 per cent of the group reported “significant clinical improvement” in ADHD symptoms to researchers, compared to 17 per cent in a control group that was given placebo brain simulation."
