Attention: types and psychological functions

Have you ever thought that the action of paying attention to something may require a very different approach between individuals? Moreover, this act is blended with multiple processes, such as seeing, hearing, or feeling. The attention is a result of interactions among millions of neurons within brain networks and systems. Article by Grossberg published in the Journal of Integrative Neuroscience describes in detail the neural models of attention. An important start point is understanding the "CLEARS" processes (Consciousness, Learning, Expectation, Attention, Resonance, and Synchrony) that take place throughout the brain. This concept allows to continue learning in individual pattern and changing experiences throughout life. Original article by the link.
