What are the physiological processes that initiate human choices and thinking?

What I meant by control though, is what physiological process allows a person to engage in or manipulate the thought process?
But this question is very loaded. How do you distinguish a person from their thought processes? It seems to imply an entity separate from the thought processes is controlling thought processes.

This is the homunculus fallacy.
