“Unifying the scientific concept of self-control: Self-control as task hacking”

Abstract: There are two apparently irreconcilable aspects of the scientific concept of self-control: the moment-to-moment state self-control and the stable trait of self-control. Deploying state self-control requires exerting cognitive effort, whereas the latter is linked with long-term wellbeing benefits but seems unrelated to cognitive effort. Are these two scientific constructs measuring the same thing? Or do they refer to different psychological phenomena? In this talk I propose the task-hacking view of self-control, which seeks to harmonize both aspects of the concept, make sense of the empirical literature, and help move the scientific study of self-control forward.

Dear Members of the CMU community:

Please plan to join us on Monday, November 4, 2019 at 8:30am for the official launch of the Carnegie Mellon Neuroscience Institute. President Farnam Jahanian will be present to dedicate the Institute, and then we will celebrate over breakfast.

Last fall, director Dr. Barbara Shinn-Cunningham and key members of the CMU community participated in a strategic planning process to create a roadmap for the new Neuroscience Institute. Since then, we have been working on faculty hires, program planning, administrative restructuring, and more. You can read more about our activities on the Neuroscience Institute website.

We will be celebrating the launch with other Neuroscience events throughout the week of November 4, so please stay tuned for more information.

We hope to see you on the morning of November 4!
