Poster 146: Nathan Caines, Devon Jecmen, James Beekhuizen – Assessment of Glucose’s Role in Cognitive Control

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Sara LoTemplio

Research suggests that both cognitive control and self-regulation share blood glucose as a common limiting resource, which we explore through a double-blind placebo-controlled crossover experiment. Using EEG, we measure the ERN in response to both glucose supplementation and placebo. We theorized that the consumption of glucose would increase the peak of the ERN compared to placebo. However preliminary data has not shown supportive evidence of this hypothesis.
