"When you decide on a goal, the prefrontal cortex changes the way the rest of the brain perceives the world. That doesn’t sound profound enough—when you decide on a goal, the prefrontal cortex changes the way you see and smell and hear the world in front of you. Decision making in the prefrontal cortex, which is a high-level brain process, affects the lower-level sensory processes."
