Building willpower through games that utilize an inhibition task process

About

Appetite is a mobile application to help conduct studies as part of on-going research for a team in the Psychology and Brain Sciences Department at Dartmouth. 

Solution

The app helps users build willpower through games that utilize a classic inhibition task process (stop-signal task). We found that participants decreased their desires to eat and ate less after the training.
