The sense of agency refers to the feeling of being in control of one’s actions, and through them, events in the world. Self-triggered events differ to externally triggered stimuli with respect to the perceived timing of their occurrence (intentional binding) as well as their intensity (sensory attenuation). In this talk Dr Gethin Hughes will discuss the functional and neural mechanisms of these purported implicit measures of agency.
