Figure Ground

The process of Figure Ground is the ability to focus on the “figure” or the important stimuli against a background of competing stimuli. The volume of stimuli coming to the brain at any given time is incredible.

figure ground

The process of Figure Ground is the ability to focus on the “figure” or the important stimuli against a background of competing stimuli. The volume of stimuli coming to the brain at any given time is incredible. The brain must automatically and rapidly sort the pertinent incoming information from the insignificant.

(If a student responds appropriately, he will ignore the person tapping a pencil in the next seat or the noises in the hall and focus on the important information being given by the teacher.)

If the sorting of information does not properly occur, the brain is bombarded with an overabundance of stimuli and a student tends to respond inappropriately or may respond with inappropriate behavior. Mental focus may vary depending on an individual’s level of interest in the information being given and the amount of competing input the brain is required to filter out. People with attention deficit disorder or ADD have poor Figure Ground.
