I remember I liked Dynamic Attending Theory. I never saw Scalar Expectancy Theory before yet though. “Scalar Expectancy Theory (SET) is a psychological theory that explains how individuals use temporal information to make predictions about the timing of events. SET proposes that individuals have an internal representation of time that is based on a scalar timing mechanism, which generates a time scale that is used to organize and predict the timing of events. The Dynamic Attending Theory (DAT) is a theory of attention that proposes that attention is a dynamic process that is influenced by both bottom-up and top-down factors. DAT suggests that attention is controlled by a set of neural mechanisms that are responsible for selecting and prioritizing incoming information based on its relevance and importance. DAT also proposes that attention is a continuous process that is influenced by the current goals and expectations of the individual, as well as by the current context and environment. Both SET and DAT have been used to study the timing abilities in individuals with ADHD, and the studies suggest that individuals with ADHD have difficulty with temporal processing, specifically in the range of milliseconds to several seconds. The exact cause of this difficulty is still not well understood, but it is thought to be related to problems with attentional control and/or temporal prediction.”
