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. In this seminar Dr. Holly Miller will discuss unconscious and reflexive behavior versus controlled and purposeful responding,executive control research, canine executive control, and how diet affects executive control and the willpower of dogs. A discussion led by Dr. Monique Udell will follow. A \\\\
