Article of the Week
Self-Centeredness May Sabotage Self-Control, Study Finds
A new study conducted at the Department of Economics University of Zurich and the University of Dusseldorf identifies a cognitive process involving the brain's temporo-parietal junction (TPJ) that, together with the prefrontal cortex (PFC), works to override the egocentric bias and self-serving desires of the present to improve self-control by projecting decision-making outcomes onto a "future self". The study suggests that the most effective neuro-cognitive process for delaying gratification involves a one-two punch that engages both the PFC and TPJ.
