Lab member and graduate student Kruti Vekaria has written an article for Brain Blogger about the relationship between patterns of neural connectivity and the tendency to procrastinate. As she describes, a recent brain imaging study of procrastinators found that, “neural functional connectivity was actually able to add significant additional predictive power on top of what self-control could predict by itself. This suggests that there is something unique about the neural connectivity that is able to predict procrastination beyond the self-control that is measured in the lab.”
