2014-08-27 03:16:59 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The aim of the study is to assess the effect of Methylphenidate on cognitive performance and decision-making ability of ADHD adults, and to compare this effect to the effect on healthy control adults.

Description

Two matched groups of adults - with and without ADHD diagnosis - will perform a battery of computerized tasks assessing sustained attention,working-memory,non-verbal IQ,and decision-making ability. In each group,half of the participants will perform the tasks after receiving a capsule containing methylphenidate (MPH), and the other half will perform the tasks after receiving placebo. Task performance measures will then be compared in order to assess the effect of MPH on these domains.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A methylphenidate derivative, DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)

A propylamine derivative and selective ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITOR that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A dextroamphetamine drug precursor that also functions as a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT and DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.

A central nervous system stimulant used most commonly in the treatment of attention-deficit disorders in children and for narcolepsy. Its mechanisms appear to be similar to those of DEXTROAMPHETAMINE.
