PSY-560 Topic 2: ADHD Worksheet
Respond to each question with a minimum of 75 words.
1. When individuals are diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), it is very common for them to be prescribed stimulants. What parts of the brain are involved in the executive attention processes and why should stimulants be helpful to those with ADHD?
2. What are some side effects from the use of stimulants to treat ADHD?
3. Examine Broadbent’s model and Treisman’s model of attention. Which one better explains the problems observed in ADHD and why? Would either model appear to benefit from the use of stimulants?
Use two to three scholarly resources, one of which MUST be the textbook, to support your explanations.
APA style is not required, but solid academic writing is expected.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
