Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of the mindfulness training on working memory and behavioral inhibition in adults with attention deficit/ hyperactivity disorder.
Method: The design of this research was quasi experiment. For this, 28 undergraduate male students of Najafabad University were selected through convenience sampling and randomly divided in two groups. The N-BACK tests to measure working memory and GO/NOGO test was used to assess behavioral inhibition. Experimental group received 8 group sessions weekly and control group did not have any treatment. Data were analyzed in covariance by using SPSS16 software.
Results: The covariance analysis was run and results showed that mindfulness training increased behavioral inhibition (p≤0/01). Also mindfulness training had no effect on working memory (p>0/05).
Conclusion: In general, mindfulness training can be considered as an effective intervention in adults with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
