Is the central executive unit that same thing like our "self". In working memory it has been proposed to be the controlling unit. Does this mean that this is where we, as individuals, make decisions? I am interested in this in regards to Social Theory, especially looking at macro/micro issues. I am wondering what it would mean for Sociology if our brain made the decisions (in regards to what we attend to), based on previously internalised knowledge, and we came to realise these decisions afterwards (as has been suggested by behavioural neuropsychology - PET scans). I would like to know if you think that this is a sensible link? I suggested it as a dissertation topic but was told to "scale it down". I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you very much !!!
