 NERVOUS SYSTEM VI: SENSORIMOTOR INTEGRATION
The motor system provides the neural control of the musculoskeletal system so that you may move within and manipulate your environment with some degree of grace & confidence even in the face of external perturbations. The motor system includes well-connected neural networks at the spinal, brainstem, cerebellar and cortical levels that implement/regulate motor control. Sensory & motor functions are often tightly coupled, and certain behaviors e.g., active touch, represent our nervous system’s propensity to actively seek information, not just react to stimuli.
