This book identifies the term bias as a core concept to the study of the neural basis of action control and myriad forms of decision making. This helps researchers to understand neurons' contribution in behavioral control and allows them to apply existing computational tools in this study. The book provides explicit linking propositions with other contemporary analyses of decision making. It aims to stimulate mutual interest among students and professionals from within and outside the area of cognitive neuroscience.

Keywords:   bias, action control, decision making, behavioral control, cognitive neuroscience
