Abstract

Adult ADHD patients (n =35) and a matched control group were given two sessions of a two-stage visual search-latent inhibition task. In stage-1, they detected whether the location of a unique shape, presented with homogeneous distractors, was on the left or right side of the screen. In stage-2, target detection response time was examined as a function of the stage-1 experience with either the target, distractor, or both, allowing for a within-subject assessment of latent inhibition (LI). In Session-1, the ADHD subjects were off their customary stimulant medication. In Session-2, they were on medication. Off-medicated ADHD subjects exhibited similar LI to that of controls; medicated ADHD subjects exhibited less LI than Controls. The group differences in LI were mediated by differences in RTs to the previously task-irrelevant distractor stimulus, suggesting that ADHD medication specifically affected the processing of the preexposed distractors that were later made into targets.
