How Thought Becomes Action


What defines your actions? Is it what you choose to do or what you choose not to do? Daniel J. Levitin, James McGill Professor of Psychology at McGill University and Sam Wang at Princeton University discuss how we make decisions, will power, and how we can train our brains to change our behavior and actions for the better.
