Well, to my knowledge the main research of the variety you describe
is that of Benjamin Libet. I wouldn't say that he is *particularly*
illustrious; those experiments in particular are particularly
controversial, and lots of people have many good arguments against
Libet's interpretations of his data.  Certainly many psychologists
I've met think his wide-ranging conclusions about free will etc. are
at least odd if not entirely questionable, and Daniel Dennett has
written a lot on the same topic (why Libet is wrong for one reason
or another.)
