This study investigated the cognitive effects of stimulant medication in children with mental retardation and Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. This case study shows the data for the Delay of Gratification (DOG) task. Children were given various dosages of a drug, methylphenidate (MPH) and then completed this task as part of a larger battery of tests. The order of doses was counterbalanced so that each dose appeared equally often in each position. For example, six children received the lowest dose first, six received it second, etc. The children were on each dose one week before testing. 

This task, adapted from the preschool delay task of the Gordon Diagnostic System (Gordon, 1983), measures the ability to suppress or delay impulsive behavioral responses. Children were told that a star would appear on the computer screen if they waited “long enough” to press a response key. If a child responded sooner in less than four seconds after their previous response, they did not earn a star, and the 4-second counter restarted. The DOG differentiates children with and without ADHD of normal intelligence (e.g., Mayes et al., 2001), and is sensitive to MPH treatment in these children (Hall & Kataria, 1992). 

Design Issues 
This is a repeated-measures design because each participant performed the task after each dosage. 

Descriptions of Variables
Variable Description 
d0   Number of correct responses after taking a placebo 
d15 Number of correct responses after taking .15 mg/kg of the drug 
d30 Number of correct responses after taking .30 mg/kg of the drug 
d60 Number of correct responses after taking .60 mg/kg of the drug 

What is the independent variable of this experiment? How many levels does it have? 

other question is on attachment number 84.
