For decades, stimulants have been used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in adolescents, improving a wide range of cognitive functions. Researchers, however, were not clear as to the mechanisms causing efficiency in the use of stimulants.

In a new study, conducted at The State University of New York at Buffalo, researchers cleared up some speculation on how the use of certain stimulants, like methylphenidate (MPH), reforms cognitive functions to diminish symptoms.

Summary: Adults with ADHD feel empowered performing creative tasks that can help them with a job, researchers report. Source: University of Michigan.

People often believe those with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder face challenges that could hinder future employment, but a University of Michigan study found that adults with ADHD feel empowered doing creative tasks that could help them on the job.
