Effects of methylphenidate in ADHD

Cognitive and neural effects of methylphenidate in children with ADHD

Children with a diagnosis of ADHD who have attended CALM and have signed up to take part in future studies are being invited back to participate in a study that will examine how working memory changes induced by methylphenidate medication for ADHD relate to changes in brain connectivity. It will involve further measures of cognition and behaviour on and off this fast-release medication, and participation in MEG neuroimaging assessments of functional connectivity in working memory activities and at rest.
