Neuropsychology of Self-regulation : Attention Control Mechanism for Controlling Thinking and Other Cognitive Processes

Author(s) Nitnem Singh Sodhi

Abstract This paper presents a comprehensive theoretical framework for understanding and consciously controlling the cognitive faculty of attention. It analyzes how language and the subject-object dichotomy fundamentally shape human thought processes. The pivotal role of attention in steering cognitive functions is examined, along with how it is influenced by cognitive biases. The brain is conceptualized as an information processing system, with attention serving as the navigational mechanism guiding cognitive faculties. The framework emphasizes the importance of articulation to effectively regulate attentional allocation. Innovative techniques are given, including a modified self-questioning method that leverages the linguistic basis of cognition to monitor and rectify attentional lapses. Grounded in neuroscience, psychology, and evolutionary theory, the paper elucidates neurological mechanisms behind conscious attentional control, including how to stop the thinking process. Potential applications range from improving cognitive performance and emotional regulation to facilitating goal attainment and overall well-being across domains.
