Performing a goal-directed action requires one to perceive the environment and act upon changes within this environment. A so-called action conflict occurs when different forms of information are present within an environment and various actions are possible. Sometimes, the information is so strong and the decision time so short, that it influences one’s behaviour and causes one to make a mistake. Dilene van Campen examines the psychological concepts of action control using a neurophysiological technique that allows causal inference about brain function, namely Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS).
