NERVOUS SYSTEM ORGANIZATION: THEORIES, THEORIES, THEORIES
How does the brain orchestrate the
myriad of instruments (neurons & muscles) required to play a piece as beautiful to the
senses as a Michael Jordan dunk? Many neuroscientists that study motor control would love to
have a definitive answer, but as yet there are only hypotheses to be tested, a challenge
as engaging to them as a 40 foot putt is to a golfer.
