    Hi John,

    I read your articles; all very interesting. Could we perhaps take one particular event (smaller scale than an entire issue -just a particular event) and explore it from your perspective? I’d like to understand better how you’re approaching it.

    I’ll suggest one, but feel free to take any. There’s been articles recently (early 2023) on how teens are becoming more and more depressed, lonely and anxious. How does understanding attention shed light on this?

    I’m still using the word attention, following Iain’s own statement that it is the essence of the difference between the way each hemisphere approaches the world. If you’d prefer to speak of the divided brain, that’s fine as well.

    Looking forward to learning more from you.
