Our Name

What is the PIRATE Project?

All research endeavors require catchy acronyms to help interested parties identify with the serious work behind them; what could be more appropriate for a fledgling startup than an allusion to our university’s mascot, the Seton Hall Pirates? Specially, our acronym refers to “Pioneering Interventions Regulating Attention Through Electroencephalography.” In other words, the PIRATE Project is dedicated to investigating the use of electroencephalographic (EEG) biofeedback, also referred to as neurofeedback, as a potential intervention for students with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The focus of our research will be an ongoing examination of the efficacy of neurofeedback to improve academic achievement.
