Research findings point to a correlation between the concentration difficulties reported by individuals with anxiety and issues with sustained attention. Specifically, evidence suggests that these individuals struggle to effectively engage frontal cortical regions responsible for attentional control. One prominent region in this context is the dorsal lateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC), recognized for its role in…
THE Coordinated activity of multiple brain regions and neural networks. Attention is a complex cognitive process that involves the selection and prioritization of sensory information for further processing and interpretation. According to neuroscience, attention is regulated by a network of brain regions that work together to filter, amplify, or suppress incoming sensory information based on…
High anxiety makes it hard to sustain attention during difficult tasks because it requires increased cognitive efforts.
