Teenagers needed for cycling research study

An approved study is being conducted to test if brief, high-intensity cycling affects language learning in adolescents with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). People aged 15-19 are being sought to participate in the study, including some who have been diagnosed with ADHD. All participants must be unable to read, speak, or understand any level of the Portuguese language.

The study will involve visiting a lab two times. The first visit will be around 95 minutes; the second will be 15 minutes. The first visit will involve viewing and trying to learn Portuguese words for 15 minutes, three 30-second hard sprints on a stationary bicycle or sitting only, and a memory test. The second visit will involve a memory test.

The study will be conducted in the Exercise Psychology Lab in UGA’s Ramsey Student Center Room 102. For their time, participants will earn $20 for the 95-minute testing session and $10 for the 15-minute session. Interested participants will need to complete a brief screening survey to determine eligibility.
