NCHPAD - Building Healthy Inclusive Communities

Purpose


Abstract by: Sarah M. Sullivan

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.



Disclaimer: Proper precautions must be taken before you begin an exercise program. An understanding of your current health status and potential problems is necessary for you to exercise safely. Please contact your physician if you have any concerns. This program is intended to incorporate high-intensity physical activity into your daily life, but should not be used in place of physical therapy, professional medical advice, or treatment.
