How the brain “plays” with predictability and randomness to choose the right time to act
We found that two different regions within the brain seem to play very different roles in the generation of action timing. One area appears to keep track of the ideal waiting time based on experience. A second area also keeps track of the ideal timing, and in addition shows variability that renders individual decisions unpredictable. – Zach Mainen
