  • THIS WEEK:   Strengthening Your Ability To Pay Attention with Winifred Gallagher.  There is no “attention center” in the brain. So where is our capacity for sustained focus located? Research shows us that it is an ensemble of alerting, orienting, and executive networks collaborating to attune us to what’s going on in our inner or outer world in coherent ways that point us toward an appropriate response. Science writer Winifred Gallagher says you can make a choice between focusing on something that is productive or generative as opposed to something that is a poor use of your time, and is non-productive.
