Posted by Melissa on Thursday, October 18, 2007 at 3:38pm.

In the Libet et al. study (1983) that asked participants to flex their wrist and record when they decided to flex it,

a. people were not very accurate in determining when they actually moved their wrist
b. the results suggested that the brain started to flex the wrist before participants were conscious of their decision to do so
c. researchers concluded there is no free will

I chose answer B. because your brain already decides it is going to flex the wrist before your consciously aware that it will do that. Is this correct?
