Tantillo, M., Kesick, C.M., Hynd, G.W., & Dishman, R.K. (2002). The effects of exercise on children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder. Medicine and Science in Sport and Exercise, 34(2), 203-212.Purpose
The purpose of this study was to examine the effects of exercise on children ages 8 to 12 with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in the areas of spontaneous eye blinks, acoustic startle eye blink response, and motor impersistence.
The hypothesis was that acute exercise will lead to increased spontaneous eye blinks, an increase in amplitude and decrease in latency of acoustic startle eye blink response, and a decrease in motor impersistence of the tested population.
