Project: Not acting isn't doing nothing.

project duration
01-OCT-09 – 30-SEP-12
The ability to voluntarily refrain from behaviour is extremely relevant in our highly interactieve and social environment tnat does not leave room for strong impulses. However, research on response inhibition has primarily focused on externally induced inhibitory control.We have recently started to investigate the neural basis and functional mechanisms of voluntary inhibition of an ongoing behaviour (self control) and voluntary decision not to execute a behaviour (voluntary non-action).
