The first section of this chapter summarises the most influential models of attention in adults, based upon current cognitive neuroscience. It then considers clinical assessment of attention, including the integration of attention in clinical neuropsychological formulations. Approaches to the rehabilitation of attention are then summarised. The second section of this chapter considers the impairment and rehabilitation of attention in children. Note the conceptual overlap between attention and speed of information processing (see Chapter 13) and working memory (see Chapter 15) and that disorders of spatial attention are covered in Chapter 19.
