Which cognitive mechanisms and neural systems underlie the ability to exert volitional control over one’s actions and emotions? How is volitional control modulated by emotions and stress? Why does volitional control break down in daily self-control failures as well as in mental disorders such as addiction?

These are some of the core questions that are investigated in the Collaborative Research Centre (CRC) 940 “Volition and Cognitive Control”.
