Patrick Haggard "The Neuroscience of Human Will"

Biological Foundations of Morality: Neuroscience, Evolution and Morality

What can neuroscience tell us about our conception of self as moral agents? Do humans really have free will? Patrick Haggard, professor of psychology at the University College of London Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, uses his and others' experiments to illustrate how free will, or conscious intention, can be studied scientifically and identifies its neural correlates in the pre-supplementary motor area of the brain. Haggard concludes that humans do not have free will in the traditional sense, but neither is it an illusion or merely an interpreter of action. He suggests that conscious intention serves a role in predictive learning and veto control.
