Caption: Biomedical illustration of the concept of medication that enhances brain activity. Methylphenidate (MPH) (molecular model in the lower right corner) is a prescription stimulant commonly used to treat Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, and Attention-deficit disorder, or ADD. It is also one of the primary drugs used to treat the daytime drowsiness symptoms of narcolepsy and chronic fatigue syndrome. Adderall (top right) treats similar illnesses and is a central nervous system stimulant. Both act by increasing the amount of dopamine available as a neurotransmitter.
