To do it now or later: The cognitive mechanisms and neural substrates underlying procrastination
Published Online: Jan 14 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wcs.1492
People would decide to do a task only when the effect of future incentive outcome is stronger than task aversiveness. Delaying a task can increase the time distance between the current self and task aversiveness, relieving the current self from the negative emotion. On the other hand, delaying a task narrows the time distance between the task and future incentive outcome, increasing motivational effects of future incentive outcomes on the delayed task. In addition, individual differences in procrastination are correlated with structural abnormalities and altered spontaneous metabolism in the parahippocampal cortex and the prefrontal cortex, which might contribute to procrastination through episodic prospection or memory and emotion regulation, respectively.
