Laziness: Blame it on the Brain?

Post by Guest on Mon Nov 16, 2015 7:02 pm

Perhaps you could care less, but newly spotted differences in how our brains work could explain why some people are apathetic and lazy. Scientists say motivation could be more about biology than attitude.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans provided a peek at brain activity in 40 healthy volunteers while they were deciding whether or not to put out some effort in exchange for a reward. The scans revealed distinct differences in the brains of those who had previously scored low on a questionnaire designed to reveal their general level of motivation. When people decide to do things, the pre-motor cortex tends to light up just before other spots in the brain that control movement become active, study researchers explained in a statement last week. Among the apathetic, making a decision whether or not to do something, the pre-motor cortex fired paradoxically more than in the go-getters.
