Introduction

Attention is in psychology and cognitive neuroscience a very well documented and researched topic. A
widely accepted definition for attention is : “Attention is the cognitive process of selective concentration
on one thing while ignoring the rest”.

Diverse dimensions of attention have been discovered like : active versus passive, internal versus
external and overt versus covert.

From all the areas, external attention is best documented since it is the easiest to obtain (relatively)
objective information for.

If we are unable to find a way an A.B. could focus attention on something, it is clear to all that this would
lead to a quick and unavoidable death of such a project !
