Rationale: Energy is the capacity for work, or the expenditure of effort. Glucose is a primary energy for the brain, and the brain uses glucose to perform the psychological work of thought and behavior.

Hypothesis: Glucose levels are therefore hypothesized to represent the capacity for thought and behavior, with effortful thought and behavior being impaired when glucose levels are lower than optimal.

Summary of Results

  1. (number) relevant findings:
  2. (number) supporting hypothesis: (have percent too, calculate percent?)
  3. (number) rejecting hypothesis
  4. (number) supporting null hypothesis

Conclusion: Experimental work confirms that lower glucose levels undermine effortful psychological processes, including self-control, memory, and perhaps performance on difficult tasks.
