A recent study underscores the importance of executive function in self-regulation and procrastination. In this interview with Dr. Laura Rabin (Department of Psychology, Brooklyn College and Graduate Center of the City University of New York, Brooklyn), we get to hear from an outstanding young neuropsychologist who also has a clinical practice. As you'll hear, Dr. Rabin's research focus is not normally on procrastination, but she brought her neuropsychological expertise to bear on how we might better understand self-regulation failure through the neurocognitive processes known as executive function (the ability to organize, plan and and problem solve). I know you'll enjoy the interview and learn a great deal of practical things related to improving our own executive function.
You can learn more about this study in my blog on Psychology Today with this post: A Neuropsychological Perspective on Procrastination
