The Neuropsychology of Conscious Volition
Download Full Text
"The modern neuropsychology of conscious volition, beginning in the latter half of the twentieth century, has begun to tell a very different story -- one in which the processes in the brain that are responsible for initiating actions and the conscious feeling of being responsible for initiating actions are considered, at least conceptually, distinct. This chapter will cover the important landmarks in the history of neuropsychological research on conscious volition, from the mid-1960s to the present, and will also include an introduction to the core concepts and to closely related topics such as the neuropsychological disorders of volition. By the end of the chapter the reader should have a basic working knowledge of modern research on conscious volition, the key discoveries, controversies, and open questions."
