Decision making partly explained.

Redish’s book tackles the very important area of decision making in reasonable fashion. The topic is important because it is one area, maybe the area, where the role of consciousness is central. Yet this is the aspect of decision making that neuroscientists typically find elusive. Redish is also unable to draw out how and why consciousness operates in this capability of the brain. He lays out the classic four decision making systems: reflexive, Pavlovian, procedural (habitual) and deliberative (goal-directed). He looks at them from every angle. But the role for consciousness: still wide open for the bounty-hunters.
