Psychologisches Kolloquium: Should I stay or should I go: Modulation of the flexibility-stability balance

Symbolbild, ©privat

Goal-directed behavior in a constantly changing environment requires a dynamic balance between two antagonistic modes of control: On the one hand, goals need to be maintained and shielded from distraction (stability), and on the other hand, goals need to be relaxed and flexibly updated whenever significant changes occur (flexibility). A dysregulation of this stability-flexibility balance can result in overly rigid or overly distractible behavior, and it is therefore important to understand how this balance is regulated in a context-sensitive, adaptive manner. In my talk I will present several empirical studies from our lab, investigating potential affective, motivational and individual modulators of this stability-flexibility balance and discuss potential underlying mechanisms.
