Attention and Immersion (Abraham, 2012)

There are several concepts related to this youtube video:  Transportation (Green, 2004), presence (Lee, 2004), experience in immersion in gaming (Jennette et al., 2008), self-control (Baumeister et al., 2007), attention and self-regulation (Hanif et al., 2011) self-determination theory and nature (Weinstein et al., 2009).

It is a good video and there are many questions that communication scholars have the tools and expertise to answer them.

  1. Nice video, but I take issue with his central thesis. Attention and immersion/presence are not the same thing. They’re different psychological states and are both interesting and important.
