This chapter first considers what it would take to offer a scientific account of self-control. It then focuses on one aspect of this larger project, by focusing on a capacity central to many exercises of self-control, namely, inhibitory control. The chapter discusses recent research on inhibitory control, as well as how this research bears on the continued study of the sensitivity of inhibitory control mechanisms to an agent’s intentions.

Keywords:   inhibitory control, self-control, ventral premotor cortex, right inferior frontal cortex, transcranial magnetic stimulation
