- Brief summary In this study, we aimed to examine the effect of Methylphenidate on sentence comprehension and creativity. This is a within-subject design. Each subject received either a drug or a placebo in one of the testing sessions. We predicted that a low-dosage of methylphenidate could enhance subject sentence comprehension and certain types of creativity thinking.
