Overview Of Lecture:

Are you easily distracted? Does overload -- visual, auditory -- come all too often?
 
Is it tough to separate what's important from what isn't? Does it feel like your "filter" could use an upgrade?
 
If so, chances are you have company. And maybe you wonder about issues like:
 
  -- What is attention?
 
  -- Can it augment the more specific functions -- seeing, hearing -- that handle sensory awareness?
 
  -- Could an "attention state" also underpin a feature like language or memory or decision-making?
 
  -- Could a flagging attention state give rise to a situation like ADHD (or a certain type of  it)?
 
  -- Can attention drive behavior? Could a shortage of attention do a number on your ability to organize yourself or your activity?
