Unconscious cerebral initiative and the role of conscious will in voluntary action

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 8 (4):529-66 (1985)
Abstract
Voluntary acts are preceded by electrophysiological (RPs). With spontaneous acts involving no preplanning, the main negative RP shift begins at about200 ms. Control experiments, in which a skin stimulus was timed (S), helped evaluate each subject's error in reporting the clock times for awareness of any perceived event
