Covert Antisocial Behavior in Boys with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: External Validation and Effects of Methylphenidate.
Hinshaw, Stephen P.; And Others
Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, v60 n2 p274-81 Apr 1992
On 2 occasions, observed 22 boys with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and 22 controls in laboratory setting which allowed subjects to steal or cheat. ADHD subjects received methylphenidate-placebo crossover. Laboratory stealing and property damage were positively correlated with maternal and staff ratings of parallel behaviors. Methylphenidate resulted in significant reductions of these acts but increases in cheating. (Author/NB)
