The epidemic of Netflix and chill has finally been explained, that is, if you believe every study out there. Hogwarts, oops, Oxford University just published a study that sheds some light on why certain people just don't feel like doing anything all day but sitting in their pajamas and maybe ordering take-out. According to the new research, those who aren't motivated have a less efficient brain structure.
A team of neuroscientists had volunteers fill out a questionnaire which scored their level of motivation. Then, researchers played a game with the participants in which the researchers made the participants offers that required varying degrees of physical effort. Each offer had an award at the end in exchange for physical exertion. While volunteers played the "game," researchers examined their brains through MRI machines.
