On Free Will I think of it like this. Do you choose what you like or dislike? Do you choose what you want to do? Certainly not. You enjoy something because endorphins in your brain are binding to receptors making it pleasurable. You desire things because dopamine is binding to receptors in your brain telling you it is in your interest to do it again. Every emotion has a corresponding neurotransmitter. We have not yet discovered the specific chemical or electrical signal for every emotion, but we will. Neurochemicals and electrical signals govern our every action and if this is true how can we have free will? Studies have been performed where scientists have implanted electrodes in the Nucleus accumbens of rodents (I think this has also been performed with humans). The individual is presented with a button that, when pushed, sends an electrical signal through the nucleus accumbens. This electrical signal stimulates the rodents dopamine releasing neurons so that the neurons release mass amounts of dopamine. After the button is pushed the desire to push it again is so powerful that the animal will continue to push no matter what. The animal will continue to push the button even when being attacked and will not stop pushing the button to eat or sleep. I ask you, did this rodent have a choice? First post BTW.
