New Understanding

Every person, not just those with ADHD, develop an Executive Function system. This brain system is complex and wired through several brain regions; it undergoes a pruning process from early childhood and continues to develop through adulthood.

 

However, because executive functions are mostly subconscious,

this helps to answer how a person with ADHD can focus very well for tasks under pressure or activities of strong interest ... and yet struggle with the many routine tasks of daily life.
