Although methylphenidate has been used for decades as a leading treatment for behavioral disorders such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Recently it has been used as a cognitive enhancer and for recreation. The mechanism underlying its actions is still unrevealed. Enhancement of mental function by prescription psychostimulants that promise to improve mental performance, attention, memory, planning, etc., is now wide spread. Moreover, in the last two decades stimulants such as MPD have been prescribed to very young children and adults for treating behavioral disorders such as ADHD. This study aims to provide a short review of methylphenidate’s effect on the animal’s behavior.
