Brain cancer fact sheet: Attention and Concentration
Attention is not just one type of mental process. There are thought to be three basic types of attention: selective attention, sustained attention and complex attention.
A survey of people with a brain tumour found that:
- 21% had problems paying attention or concentrating.
- 13% were disorganised.
- 29% could not do two things at the same time such as talk and prepare a meal.
