    Children with Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) are typically treated with two types of medications: stimulants and non-stimulants. These medications work in different ways to treat ADHD symptoms, but we do not fully understand the brain mechanisms underlying the medications' effects. This study will use MRI scanning to look at changes in the brain associated with medication treatment of ADHD in children. In this study, we will be comparing two FDA-approved medication treatments for ADHD in children: (1) A stimulant called Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine); (2) A non-stimulant...
