Modeling of dynamics of distribution of attention in protses-sah a goal-setting



The role and mechanism of focusing attention in the process of formulating objectives by people are considered. A connection has been shown between the development of emotional experience, keenness of attention and the value containing the excitation zone stimulus. A mathematical model was devised and tested. The model determines changes in keenness of attention depending on the intensity of emotions and the distance between the stimulus and the current point in the space of mental images. The model is based on the application of the Gaussian function together with the law of emesis intensity changes.
