UW-L Presentation

If you’ve ever struggled to resist a piece of chocolate cake, get up when the alarm goes off or quit smoking, you might be interested in what UW-L student Eric Barreau has to say about your brain. “People think they either have willpower or they don’t. That’s simply not true. Some have more than others and it’s a limited resource that people can lose,” Barreau says. “It all boils down to the blood glucose levels in the brain.” Barreau, a psychology major, has been studying self control for more than a year. He’ll present his research on how self control impacts eating behavior during the Celebration of Student Research and Creativity Friday, April 3, at UW-L. Barreau will give one of 30 oral presentations at the event. The celebration also includes 127 student poster displays and three visual arts exhibits.
