(It gets confusing to toss around hyperactivity and hypoactivity together in that context. Throw in "mental restlessness" and it gets super-duper confusing.)
I wonder what the differences are between “hypoactive affective attention” and “hypoactive affective regulation”.

I wonder if “hypoactive affective regulation” and “hypoactive affective attention” are the same things?

I wonder if top down “hypoactive cognitive regulation/hypoactive cognitive attention “ are the neurodevelopmental effects of having bottom up “hypoactive affective regulation/hypoactive affective attention”?
