Methylphenidate Increases Selectivity of Visual Scanning in Children Referred for Hyperactivity.
Flintoff, Margaret M.; And Others
Journal of Abnormal Child Psychology, v10 n2 p145-61 Jun 1982

Results suggested that the stimulant drug may increase attentional selectivity even when such a shift fails to produce improvement in task performance. (Author)
