Dopamine promotes cognitive effort by biasing the benefits versus costs of cognitive work
Stimulants such as methylphenidate are increasingly used for cognitive enhancement but precise mechanisms are unknown. We found that methylphenidate boosts willingness to expend cognitive effort by altering the benefit-to-cost ratio of cognitive work.

A sequential sampling model informed by momentary gaze revealed that decisions to expend effort are related to ...
