Groups/Cohorts
methylphenidate
30 adolescents who are treated with Methylphenidate will perform the driving simulator and seat pressure mapping tests, in 2 different days : 1. with their regular methylphenidate medication and 2: without the methylphenidate medication after a 4 days washout period. Results will be recorded and statistical test will be performed.
no medication
30 adolescents : control group , not suffering from ADHD and without methylphenidate medication will perform the driving simulator and seat pressure mapping tests. Results will be recorded and statistical test will be performed.

Detailed Description:

Adolescents with ADHD who are treated with one of the methylphenidate medication that is in use in Israel(Ritalin,Ritalin SR,Concerta,Ritalin LA)will be tested by driving simulator and seat pressure mapping by 2 stages: 1.when they are taking the medication that they are taking every day to control ADHD and: 2. without medication ( after 4 day washout period).
