Attention control refers to the ability to voluntarily manage and regulate one’s focus and attention between different tasks, responsibilities, and sources of information. It involves being able to prioritize tasks based on their importance, switch between tasks efficiently, avoiding distractions that might interfere and sustain attention over extended periods of time . It involves the more advanced ability to manage and direct our attentional resources, and therefore requires higher-level cognitive processes such as decision making, executive control, and working memory.
