YES!! I recognized the name of that study! “An accumulator model for spontaneous neural activity prior to self-initiated movement” “We propose that the neural decision to move coincides in time with average subjective estimates of the time of awareness of intention to move (9, 11) and that the brain produces a reasonably accurate estimate of the time of its movement-causing decision events.”

“An accumulator model for spontaneous neural activity prior to self-initiated movement”

“We propose that the neural decision to move coincides in time with average subjective estimates of the time of awareness of intention to move (9, 11) and that the brain produces a reasonably accurate estimate of the time of its movement-causing decision events.”

What I loved about this study is that the 150ms timing of “decision to move” is *pre n400* – that is, you choose to move consciously before the grammatical systems fully kick in – at about the SAME time it’s measured to take.

That is, the subjective and objective timings co-incide. Free will.
