Free Will

Peter Tse '84 Awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship

Peter Tse ’84, professor of psychological and brain sciences, is among 178 scholars, artists, and scientists in the United States and Canada awarded fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation for 2014.

The fellows are selected “on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise,” according to the foundation. Tse, who holds a PhD in cognitive psychology from Harvard, is the author of The Neural Basis of Free Will: Criterial Causation (2013).

Tse and his students employ neuroscientific data, gathered using fMRI and other techniques, to show how free will might be realized in the brain.
