9781107608627: The Neuroscience of Freedom and Creativity: Our Predictive Brain

Professor Joaquín M. Fuster is an eminent cognitive neuroscientist whose research over the last five decades has made fundamental contributions to our understanding of the neural structures underlying cognition and behaviour. This book provides his view on the eternal question of whether we have free will. Based on his seminal work on the functions of the prefrontal cortex in decision-making, planning, creativity, working memory, and language, Professor Fuster argues that the liberty or freedom to choose between alternatives is a function of the cerebral cortex, under prefrontal control, in its reciprocal interaction with the environment. Freedom is therefore inseparable from that circular relationship. 'The Neuroscience of Freedom and Creativity' is a fascinating inquiry into the cerebral foundation of our ability to choose between alternative actions and to freely lead creative plans to their goal.

Book Description:

In a fascinating exploration of the question of free will, eminent cognitive neuroscientist, Joaquín Fuster, argues that the liberty or freedom to choose between alternatives is a function of the nervous system, especially the cerebral cortex, in its reciprocal interaction with the environment. Freedom is inseparable from that circular relationship.
