    Aim: The current research aims to understand the efficacy of Captain’s log, a computerized training programme, on the EEG parameters, and on attention, working memory, processing speed, hyperactivity of the children with ADHD-combined type. Methods: A computerized cognitive training programme Captains log Brain Train is used for treating the child. The male child performed cognitive tasks 36 minutes twice a week for 35 sessions that focused on improvement of attention, concentration, processing speed, working memory and impulsivity. Pre- and post- treatment differences on the Evoke Related Potential (ERP), Conners Parent Rating Scale, coding was considered as indices of changes. Results: The Scores on Conners Rating Scale revealed a decrease inattention and minimal change in hyperactivity. Electrophysiological testing on Evoke Response Potential (ERP) shows decrease in latency and increase in amplitudes in the few component of ERP. Conclusion: The processing speed, visuomotor coordination, sustained attention and working memory improved in the child after cognitive training but the tasks that recruit higher cognitive functioning such as, planning, organizing and conflict monitoring did not show marked improvement.
