Visual Attention Exercises

Frontal and parietal networks allow for the ability to pay attention to visual stimuli. Visual attention is needed for skills such as driving, where select objects within view should be attended to while distractions should be ignored.

This specific cognitive skill can be impaired when damage occurs along with the frontoparietal network, causing people to become easily distracted and overwhelmed when they have to attend to and filter visual stimuli in their environment while completing a task.
