Planning and control: Are they separable in the brain? Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem

Abstract

We argue that planning and control may not be separable entities, either at the behavioural level or at the neurophysiological level. We review studies that show the involvement of superior and inferior parietal cortex in both planning and control. We propose an alternative view to the localization theory put forth by Glover.
