Motivational Deficit in Childhood Depression and Hyperactivity.
Layne, Christopher; Berry, Elizabeth
Journal of Clinical Psychology, v39 n4 p523-31 Jul 1983
Measured the expectations, values, and motivations of depressed, hyperactive, and normal children (N=54). Results confirmed that depressed children exhibited reduced motivation, primarily because their expectations were pessimistic, although not abnormally irrational. Hyperactives exhibited optimistic expectations, inflated values, and, hence, inflated motivation--especially for tangible rewards. (JAC)
