Our Brain & ‘Our’ Free Will

So free will is a controversial concept, some believe we have free will, others not really.

I stumbled upon this article about free will and our brains and found it very interesting to say the least. We can in fact believe we have free will and full control of our actions but what happens when an injury or brain alteration happens, such as tumor?

So studies have shown that a tumor in the brain can alter someone’s personality to the point of complete change of one’s self control or even will.

Neuroscientists and psychologists are working in understanding our drives and motivations.They are recognizing a strong importance of the subconscious in decision-making.

Read the following story and make a decision of your own about your free will.
