    Verbal reasoning- where do i post this question?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Please advice on the appropriate forum to post the question below; it's from the new GRE PowerPrep.

    In the early 1980's neuroscientists studying the brain processes underlying our sense of conscious
    will compared subjects' judgments regarding their subjective will to move (W) and actual
    movement (M) with objective electroencephalographic activity called readiness potential, or RP.
    As expected, W preceded M: subjects consciously perceived the intention to move as preceding a
    conscious experience of actually moving. This might seem to suggest an appropriate correspondence
    between the sequence of subjective experiences and the sequence of the underlying events in the brain.
    But researchers actually found a surprising relation between subjective experience and objectively
    measured neural events: in direct contradiction of the classical conception of free will, neural preparation
    to move (RP) preceded conscious awareness of the intention to move (W) by hundreds of milliseconds

    Based on information contained in the passage, which of the following chains of events would most closely
    conform to the classical conception of free will?

    A: W followed by RP followed by M

    B: RP followed by W followed by M

    C: M followed by W followed by RP

    D: RP followed by M followed by W

    E: RP followed by W and M simultaneously

    Will should come first before any bodily stuff. If it's truly your choice, your body should only be reacting to what your mind tells it.

    This makes it sound like RP is before W. What am I missing here? Is (W) 'intention to move' rather than 'conscious awareness of the intention to move?'
