Decision-Making in ADHD: An Evaluation of the Subjective Value of Rewards and Costs

Children with attention and behavior problems often need external rewards to motivate them to perform challenging tasks, but we don’t yet know much about how children weigh potential rewards and the effort required to obtain the rewards. This research is being done to find out how children with varying levels of ADHD symptoms value rewards and costs when making decisions about whether or not to perform a difficult task.

There will be one in-person visit. Children will complete two computerized cognitive tasks (thinking games), and will be able to earn prizes from the points they earn on these tasks. Parents will also be asked to complete a few questionnaires that should take about 25 minutes to finish. Children can earn up to $50 in compensation for completing the study.
