Attention in Games: An Experimental Study 

Abstract : A common assumption in game theory is that players concentrate on one game at a time. However, in everyday life, we play many games and make many decisions at the same time and have to decide how best to divide our limited attention across these settings. In this paper we ask how players solve this attention-allocation problem. We find that the attention of players is attracted to particular features of the games they play and how much attention a subject gives to a particular game depends on the other game that he or she is simultaneously attending to.
