This chapter discusses experiments using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and pattern classifiers to explore less immediate intentions and choices than Libet studied. The researchers found signals from unconscious brain activity that predict, above chance, decisions 7–10 seconds in advance. They were also able to separate the “what” from the “when” in a decision.

Keywords:   functional magnetic resonance imaging, intentions, choices, unconscious brain, decisions, what, when
