The TAIH-C measures impulsivity and hyperactivity independently. The two impulsivity measures are based on research into the measurement of temporal discounting. Essentially they assess the psychological construct of impulsivity, which we define as the preference for smaller, more immediate reinforcers over larger, delayed reinforcers. The two scales assess impulsivity and its opposite, self-control in the context of choice between positive reinforcers and choice between negative reinforcers. Measures of hyperactivity are taken under the standardised conditions of the attention tasks (as described in paper one) using a micro processing motion detection device. In this paper, the performance on both impulsivity scales, and on the hyperactivity measures, of children independently diagnosed with ADHD are compared to those of non-ADHD peers.
