    Book synopsis: Action selection is the task of doing the right thing at the right time. It requires the assessment of available alternatives, executing those most appropriate, and resolving conflicts among competing goals and possibilities. Using advanced computational modelling, this book explores cutting-edge research into action selection in nature from a wide range of disciplines, from neuroscience to behavioural ecology, and even political science. It delivers new insights into both detailed and systems-level attributes of natural intelligence and demonstrates advances in methodological practice. Contributions from leading researchers cover issues including whether biological action selection is optimal, neural substrates for action selection in the vertebrate brain, perceptual selection in decision making, and interactions between group and individual action selection. This first integrated review of action selection in nature contains a balance of review and original research material, consolidating current knowledge into a valuable reference for researchers while illustrating potential paths for future studies. Focuses on the methodology of computational modelling, enabling readers to understand and apply cutting-edge techniques to their particular research questions Covers multiple levels of description and analysis, demonstrating that action selection is a fundamental problem in biology, spanning many levels from cells to systems to organisms to societies Contains a balance of review and original research material, providing a landmark reference on the current state of the field while indicating avenues for future research
