Example text

More modern versions of the ego model, such as the attentional approach of Kahneman (1973) and the ego-depletion model of Baumeister, Bratslavsky, Muraven, and Tice (1998), have focused on the assumed capacity requirements of cognitive control. The basic assumption is that control operations require cognitive resources that automatic operations do not. This allows for a number of empirical predictions that have been tested with some success. For instance, extensive and repeated reliance on control operations should tend to exhaust the hypothetical resource, which should impair subsequent control operations, but not automatic operations, until the resource is refilled.
