Description: 
The invention relates to a system and method for treatment of mental disorder (e.g. ADHD, etc.). The system makes use of neurofeedback to help the subject improve his/her attention. The system is based on Brain-computer Interface (BCI) using physiological biosignal (such as electroencephalogram (EEG), electrooculogram (EoG), electromyogram (EMG)) from which attention and emotion related information index are detected to automatically and adaptively adjust the degree of difficulty in an online feedback-presentation scenario under time constraints. The system is integrated into a multiple-client server system with subject profile manager.
