Reviews
"An exciting guide for those who want to understand from a computational and neural perspective how and why the vigor of our actions reveals so much about our inner thoughts."
- Daniel Wolpert, Mortimer B. Zuckerman Mind Brain Behavior Institute, Columbia University

"Vigor provides fascinating biological foundations of utility and choice by showing how our movements reveal our preferences. Shadmehr and Ahmed offer a cardinal measurement tool for utility that is of fundamental interest to all scholars in decision science."
- Ernst Fehr, Director of the UBS Center for Economics in Society, University of Zurich

"Using multiple features, including attention and motivation, Shadmehr and Ahmed show how mind and action are controlled by various brain areas. This unique approach makes Vigor an important book for both individuals and society."
- Okihide Hikosaka, Distinguished Investigator, NIH
