Re: Attention: what is it? What are the subject and object of it?

My advisor in grad school was fond of saying that attention is not a unitary construct. There is selective attention that can roughly be defined as filtering out extraneous information. There is also sustained attention which has more to do with stamina and arousal. Which forms of attention (if any) are involved in ADHD remains up for debate.
