* Prioritization is an expansion of inhibition and impulse control

Memory must inhibit the retrieval of irrelevant information and offer up the piece of information relevant to the query.

Perhaps the basic deficit in ADHD/autism when it comes to memory and failure to prioritize is lack of inhibitory control?
