Why Instant Gratification Wins
Brain battle provides insight into consumer behavior

A new discovery has shed light on why we opt for instant gratification
instead of long-term rewards, providing insight into consumer behavior
and new treatments for drug addiction.

There is nothing like functional MRI to gain "insight" into how minds
work. :-)
