This project investigates how individual differences in self-regulation are represented in the brain, using functional magnetic resonance imaging in a sample of healthy young males. Both self-reported self-regulation and behavioural measures of self-regulation are quantified to test the hypothesis that individual differences in self-regulation (more specifically impulse control and behavioural flexibility) coincide with differences in brain activation and functional connectivity of the lateral network of the brain.
