The Actor's Brain: Exploring the Cognitive Neuroscience of Free Will

Oxford University Press (2009)
Abstract
Is free will just an illusion? What is it in the brain that allows us to pursue our own actions and objectives? What is it about this organ that permits seemingly purposeful behaviour, giving us the impression we are free? This book takes a journey into the brain to examine what is about known voluntary behaviour, and why it can go wrong
