Summary

Some medications are able to temporarily alter the levels of brain chemicals such as noradrenaline, and this can be useful in regulating behaviour.

This study is exploring the short term effects of taking a dose of a medication called atomoxetine in healthy and stimulant-dependent individuals. By looking at these effects, we hope to better understand how this medication may help regulate attention and behaviour.
