An increasing number of healthy students dope themselves with ADHD drugs. What happens when ‘study drugs’ become normal? A new study sets out to find the answer. Having observed how students in the US and Denmark use study drugs, a Danish anthropologist hopes to shed light on this poorly researched area. For some students, the pressure to get good grades is so strong that they take prescription drugs in an effort to improve their performance. In the vast vacuum of qualitative studies in this field, Danish anthropologist Margit Anne Petersen’s PhD project aims to take a closer look at this phenomenon known as smart drugs, intelligence enhancers, neuroenhancers, nootropics, or simply ‘study drugs’.
