Creativity, measured by the Torrance nonverbal thinking test, was compared in 19 boys with ADHD and 21 control subjects. Boys with ADHD received methylphenidate (mean dose, 0.4 mg/kg) before the first of two test sessions. Torrance scores were 7% lower in boys with ADHD compared to controls. Methylphenidate did not adversely affect creative thinking scores in ADHD boys. (Funk JB et al. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, creativity, and the effects of methylphenidate. Pediatrics April 1993; 91: 816-819).
