How do we learn to be very deliberate and far-sighted is some situations but very reflexive and short-sighted in others? To answer these questions, we developed the Learned Value of Control model according to which the plasticity of cognitive control is driven by reinforcement learning mechanisms very similar to those that shape our habits. In the first part of my talk, I will present empirical evidence suggesting that this model can capture how interference control, strategy selection, attention, and planning are shaped by learning from experience. In the second part of my talk, I will illustrate how this perspective can be leveraged to develop effective interventions and training programs for improving people’s decision-making and executive functions.
