How do we control our actions? Which subprocesses are important, and how do they shape each other?

The ability to cancel ongoing or prepotent actions is often seen as something willed and controlled, but less attention is given to the multitude of underlying processes contributing to this form of action control. The main purpose of my PhD project will be to dive deeper into the neural cascade of processes contributing to action cancellation. To what degree are these subprocesses controlled? Can control be automatized? And do we need conscious awareness of control signals to exert what we consider as control?
