Rosenbaum et al (2018) evaluated the neurophysiological correlates of the Attention Training Technique (ATT). More specifically they aimed to evlauate the effect of the componenets of ATT (selective attention, attention switching, and divided attention) in comparison to a control task. Increased blood oxygen in the right inferior frontal gyrus, right dorsolateral prefrontal cortex and superior parietal lobule were observed during the ATT but not control condition. The results support the theory underlying ATT, suggesting that the mechanism of change underlying ATT surrounds the cognitive control network and dorsal attention network.
