Several task parameters help people with ADHD to perform better on computerized cognitive tasks, namely reduced response-to-stimulus interval, discriminative feedback, or a format resembling a videogame. However, still very little is known about how these contexts might be helpful in a real work environment. We developed a computerized task resembling a fast-paced videogame with no response-to-stimulus interval and constant and diverse discriminative error feedback.
