Focus enhancement

Focus enhancement can be described as the experience of an increased ability to selectively concentrate on an aspect of the environment while ignoring other things. It can be best characterized by feelings of intense concentration which can allow one to focus on and perform tasks which would otherwise be considered too monotonous, boring, or dull to not get distracted from. This will often synergise with other coinciding effects such as motivation enhancement, thought acceleration, and stimulation.

Focus enhancement is an extremely common effect under the influence of many stimulant or nootropic substances such as amphetamine, methylphenidate, modafinil, and caffeine. However, it is worth noting that the same compounds which induce this mind state at light to moderate dosages will also result in the opposite effect of focus suppression at heavier dosages.
