Dual-Process Theory of Action
some actions are ‘controlled by two processes: a goal-directed [instrumental] and an habitual process’
Dickinson, 2016 p. 179

Are the causes of this action habitual or instrumental? Both!
‘[instumental] and habitual control have been doubly dissociated in two brain regions.

These dissociations suggest that different neural circuits mediate the two forms of control’
Dickinson, 2016 p. 184
