or at least the place where we decide to act...

Possible site of free will found in brain - life - 07 May 2009 - New Scientist

It's actually about the consciousness of movement - where the impulse to move apparently originates in the parietal cortex, signals to the premotor cortex which then initiates the movement and signals back to the parietal cortex that a movement was made.

Not exactly "Free Will," but then whether or not Free Will even exists is a question that hasn't been answered to everyone's satisfaction.

But interesting, nonetheless.
