The brain chemical that could make you a better worker

David Brancaccio and Jeremy Hobson May 2, 2012

So we all know that some people are more motivated to work hard than others — whether in school or at the office.

Well, a new study has discovered a possible clue as to what sets the worker bees apart from the frequent snack-break takers.

Turns out, the ones who like to work also seem to have higher levels of dopamine in some parts of their brain.

Here to talk with us about the findings in today’s Mid-day Extra is Michael Treadway, lead author of the study, who is also a clinical fellow at McLean Hospital at Harvard Medical School.

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.
