This chapter begins with a brief tour of the sensory mechanisms of the human brain. The goal of this tour is to reveal several of the basic computational principles that recur throughout the mammalian brain. This is followed by a brief tour of the movement control (or motor) structures of the brain, which current evidence points to as a major component of the primate choice mechanism. The goal of this second step is to provide the anatomical foundations for understanding choice.
