Motivation and Willpower: How It Works and How to Manage It

Our brain is lazy. Evolutionally we are wired to choose a path of least resistance and save the body resources - yet this path makes it difficult to gain new knowledge and skills. Human brain strives for immediate results and is very disappointed if we fail to provide them, but the learning process rarely brings quick results. Frequently, staying motivated is even more challenging than studying itself. How not to stop halfway and get the job done, how far you can go solely on your motivation and how your motivation works from neuroscience perspective - these and many other questions will be answered by our experts in neuropsychology, philosophy and education.
