Description: Research with humans and dogs suggests that executive control relies on a limited resource and that invoking executive control depletes this resource. Once depleted, subsequent efforts to control behavior are impaired and greater impulsivity, memory impairment, and aggression are observed. Research suggests that these deficits associated with depletion can be eliminated if subjects consume a glucose (but not a calorie-free) drink.studies self-control in humans and dogs. As a graduate student at the University of Kentucky, Holly helped develop the Canine Cognition Lab and Science Dog Daycare at the University of Kentucky.
