An impressive study to be released in the journal Science on Monday uses new imaging techniques to reveal exercises of free will occurring in the brain.

I’m left uneasy by the methodology as I find it a little imprecise, however, is this only because I have unresolved philosophical issues ? Could it really be so simple ? Why do I need to criticize this, yet feel the urge to smack my forehead with my palm (thinking why couldn’t I do that?) at the same time?
