  • Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Purpose:

The goal of this study is to create a formal, quantitative methodology to determine what is the most beneficial dose of Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant (Ritalin, methylphenidate) to improve cognitive and behavioral function of children diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) individually. If successful, it will change the way in which the dose of CNS stimulant for treating ADHD is determined for children in need of therapeutic intervention. The project will be focused on developing the necessary methodology to analyze the children's data with the drift-decision model (DDM), and to develop the required technology, i.e., a computer game with which to measure cognitive/behavioral function and its validation with eye-tracking measurements.
