actually there is
quote from "Consciousness Explained" by Daniel C Dennett
"A remarkable experiment by neurosurgeon W.Grey Walter....
with patients in whose motor cortex he had implanted electrodes"
the patients were given a a button to press, and a series of slides to
They were told that the button advanced the slides, but actually
the switch was a dummy, and the changeover from one slide to another
was triggered by the brain electrode
"..were startled by the effect, because it seemed to them as if the
slide projector was anticipating their decisions. They reported that
just as they were 'about to' push the button, but before they had actually
to do so, the projector would advance the slide - and they would find
themselves pressing the button with the worry that it was going to advance
the slide twice."
