About this study
This project will examine how an acute single dose of Methylphenidate (Ritalin® 10mg) affects visual attention, subjective mood assessments and driving performance. Participants can be aged between 21 and 40 years old, in good health and have a current (valid) full driver's licence (no ‘P’ plates).
Participants will be asked to attend Swinburne University on three separate occasions:
- one screening session for a maximum of 1.5 hours
- two testing sessions (one week apart) for three hours each.
In each testing session, participants will receive either Methylphenidate (Ritalin® 10mg) or a placebo only. They will be reimbursed for their time and travel for their participation in the study.
