For your thoughts to be useful, they must be enacted. This is true even for very mundane thoughts corresponding to getting up from your desk, walking out of your office, ambling down the hallway, entering the room where this talk will be held, making your way to your seat, and settling in to hear about research on the planning and control of everyday actions. The research will draw on evidence from neurophysiology, behavioral science (human and non-human), and computational modeling. It will show that though we put little conscious thought into action, we draw on deep intelligence to carry out the physical behaviors we perform every day.
