Sensory processing overwhelming Bayesian making perception much closer to actual reality of now but it has drawbacks.

Sensory processing overwhelming Bayesian making perception much closer to actual reality of now but it has drawbacks.
 
That’s three papers saying the same thing for different things: This one is on Autism (“Can Bayesian Theories of ASD help improve clinical practice”).
 
I saw another one on OCD / anxiety (“How distrust of the past shapes obsessive-compulsive disorder” which was based on “Doubting what you already know: Uncertainty regarding state transitions is associated with obsessive compulsive symptoms”)
 
And ADHD: “Beating their chests: University students with ADHD demonstrate greater attentional abilities on an inattentional blindness paradigm. Neuropsychology,”
 
And psychosis / schizophrenia “The computational anatomy of psychosis”
 
So, being keenly aware of the present sensory processes with a diminished ability to trust that even good priors _might_ be correct can make it harder to ground / center to something else or rather, too easily ‘thrown off center’ and falling into a loop in the present moment.
 
Yet one on Major Depression had much different Bayesian settings
“too much precision afforded to negative prior beliefs”
“Distorted Cognitive Processes in Major Depression: A Predictive Processing Perspective”
 
So: I’ll need to look at more in this line of thinking. It’s interesting and I’m hoping to find more contrasts in this Bayesian / predictive processing modeling.

Now this also shows something in common with asd /adhd / ocd but here it is “attention switching problems”.

Can attention switching be construed as the same as having diminished attention to priors and more attention to sensory inputs?

I think so. How does it relate to distractibility?

“In conclusion, attention switching problems may reflect both symptom overlap and a common etiological factor underlying ASD, ADHD and OCD.”

 Yes, it links!
ATTENTION SWITCHING LINKED TO OCD, ASD AND ADHD
For OCD in particular an inability to manage attention switching may lead to memory formation that is untrusted. Untrusted memories are believed to be responsible for some of the OCD symptoms such as checking behaviours (e.g. door locks, oven and fridge doors).”
