Cognitive Control Modulates Effects of Episodic Simulation on Delay Discounting in Aging

Abstract

Enhancing prospective thinking by tagging the future with specific episodic events has been shown to reduce delay discounting in young age ("tag-effect"). So far, it is unclear whether such beneficial effect extends to old adulthood. Since the general ability of future thinking and cognitive control are crucial modulators of temporal discounting in young… (More)
