Messages of Medication: Effects of Actual versus Informed Medication Status on Hyperactive Boys' Expectancies and Self-Evaluation.
Whalen, Carol K.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v59 n4 p602-06 Aug 1991
After 15 boys with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder were informed that they had taken either medication or placebo, they completed computer tasks, self-assessments, and causal judgments. Boys predicted better performance when told they were on medication. For self-evaluations, medication status and information interacted, with boys actually taking placebo rating themselves more positively when told they had taken medication. (Author/NB)
