Summary

Attention is necessary for eliminating sensory inputs or behavioral tasks that are irrelevant at a specified time. Although there may be multiple forms of attention, some neural sites, such as the parietal lobe, are involved in many aspects of attention. The control and effects of these multiple forms of selection are quite varied, however. The integration of top-down behavioral tasks or goals and bottom-up stimulus factors may allow the attentional system to be highly flexible and allow a small subset of components to have varied effects.
