Effects of rewards on attention, memory, and inhibiting in children with and without ADHD

NIMH Parent Grant Title: Inhibitory Control and Clinical Response in ADHD

Investigating separate and combined effects of motivational incentives and medication relative to normal control performance. Specific goals include relating results of the cognitive tasks to measures of behavior and classroom performance taken in a naturalistic setting to bridge the gap between laboratory studies and behavioral studies.


Children between the ages of 9 and 12 with ADHD, as well as typically-developing comparison children in the same age range. Check with study staff for more information.
