How does willpower work and how do underlying factors such as cognitive control and motivation influence it? We talk to Dr. Roshan Cools about her research.
We cover many topics ranging from reward and the role of dopamine as well as cognitive enhancers such as ritalin or adderall and if they are actually effective or not. 
We also touched upon how UX design could impact cognitive control and how you should think about it.
