New study finds links between inattention and computer addiction, especially in women.
A new study from the Kaohsiung Medical University Hospital in Taiwan confirms something ADDers know well--that attention deficit is associated with Internet addiction. But it also reveals a new tidbit: Women with ADD are more vulnerable to Internet addiction than men.
In addition, the study examined which ADD symptom was responsible for the Internet addiction--inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity. Results showed that inattention was most often associated, followed by impulsivity.
The study was based on self-reported data from nearly 3,000 college students in Taiwan. Read more about the study.
