Although the link between insomnia and attentional control dysfunction has been clearly established, little is known about how cognitive symptoms mediate the relationship between insomnia and attention control. This study investigates how attention control affects cognitive symptoms and insomnia. Our findings revealed that the relationship between selective attention and attentional control during the pre-sleep period was mediated by pre-sleep cognitive activity. This result suggests the possibility of ameliorating insomnia by changing cognitive processes during the pre-sleep period through intervention in attention control.
