Distractibility

Inattentiveness


Presentation

  • In the top-down condition, when the patients with AD, versus controls, were presented with imperative stimuli on their left side, they demonstrated a greater attentional bias than when presented with right-sided stimuli.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Excessive Daytime Sleepiness
  • CONCLUSIONS: Excessive daytime sleepiness in people with MS adversely influences their processing speed in the presence of real-world distracters.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Plethora
  • Despite a plethora of data describing the effect of alcohol and sleep loss on vigilant attention, little is known about their effect on voluntary and involuntary visual attention processes. DESIGN: Repeated-measures, counterbalanced design.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Normal Hearing
  • Here we used a cross-modal distraction paradigm to investigate multisensory processing in elderly participants with an age-related high-frequency hearing loss as compared to young and elderly subjects with normal hearing.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Suggestibility
  • Abstract Recent studies of selective attention in schizophrenia patients suggest a particular pattern of single-trial Stroop performance: increased facilitation but not interference in reaction times (RTs), combined with increased error interference.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Perseveration
  • Rather than influencing set switching in an unspecific way, positive affect thus exerted opposite effects on perseveration and distractibility.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
Responsiveness Decreasing
  • Correct responses decreased during VD, relative to SHUT, and this disruption of episodic retrieval was to a greater degree in the VLPFC experiment than the Vertex experiment (Figure 4B ).[journal.frontiersin.org]

Treatment

  • METHODS: The subjects were 10 treatment-naïve children with MD and 10 controls.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • GeneSight was then ordered to utilize pharmacogenomic information to support the next steps in treatment.[genesight.com]
  • “Without treatment they just learn to survive, and their symptoms look like rigid behaviors or even OCD,” Fister says. “Eventually it will be judged as part of their personality.” Occupational therapy is a common treatment.[spokesman.com]

Epidemiology

  • METHODS: Subjects were adults ages 18-55 of both sexes (n 41) who completed the Mind-Wandering Questionnaire (MWQ) and the ADHD module of the Schedule for Affective Disorders and Schizophrenia for School-Age Children Epidemiologic Version.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

Age distribution

Prevention

  • These findings suggest that the level of perceptual load in a task can predict whether individual differences in distractibility will be found and that high-load modifications of daily tasks may prove useful in preventing unwanted consequences of high[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]
  • Nearly a third of those (32 percent) required a a sudden verbal warning or command for action, and 20 percent needed an assisted steering or braking maneuver to prevent an imminent accident.[aabgu.org]

  • Numerous other studies confirm that ADHD seems to run in families, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.[howtoadult.com]
  • When the subjects avoided confrontation with the unpleasant pictures through distraction, decrease in responsiveness was prevented as reflected in their constant LPP amplitudes.[en.wikipedia.org]
