In the moment.
Working memory - I can feel a resistance to accepting anything into working memory (knowledge) unless it can be resolved into understanding.To refuse entry of information which I can see is flawed; working memory is hopelessly overswept by the increased information access which the ADDer has access to.
There's too much information to store.
There is always too much information to store. "HSP" or not.



Unfortunately we have all been led up the garden path re "working memory", primarily it relates to motor activity. ( though typing, talking, writing, playing are all forms of motor activity.

From my recent reading working memory is consumed in holding in mind the initial position of the eye, the head and the body, and the position at the end of the movement.

The symbolic content of the written/typed material also uses working memory-- but that working memory is not fundamentally different from the abstract ideas of where the body parts are at.

So - the idea would be to retract from the working memory paradigm into reflection?

I don't work in real-time. But real time isn't real time is it ?
Just social convention - that we must operate through speech and not writing.
Talking and gesture are the primary modes of communication. In fact non verbals predominate.

If we imagine saccades much like a camera set on 'burst mode' - then the number of images coming through in ADHD is far increased over the non ADD state.

The idea of "burst mode" does not really fit with the physiology of eye movements.
In ADD the eye movements are continually overshooting, undershooting or correcting. That requires more movements.
The real issue lies in the sensory mismatch which leads to us not actually "knowing" (subconsciously) where we, our eyes and our heads and neck are.



Ive drawn attention to this video before, but it shows a very clear inverse correlation between numbers of eye movements, physiological distress and competency of eye movements before and after neuro rehabilitation.

You cant get a plainer knowledge of the relevance of this model.
