Traditional efforts to understand decision-making take a divide and conquer approach. That is, they divide choice into its psychological elements and work to assign elements to anatomically defined brain regions. I will explore evidence against this approach, including evidence that choice reflects distributed functionality. I will take special focus on recordings made during naturalistic decision-making tasks, including those involving unrestrained movement.
