Freeman: That’s an easy choice, Dr. Domino.
Domino: Oh, is it? I guess the neurons in your brain have already decided for you. Isn’t there much neuroscience research demonstrating that humans lack free will?
Freeman: Yes, but a lot of it’s junk.
Domino: Really? Are you aware of the classic experiment carried out by Benjamin Libet and colleagues?''
