motor system communication


Today's news from neurobio:

The motor system is how we control our body.

"The motor pathway is a hierarchy because information flows down far more than it flows back up. Motor cortex is the boss and motoneurons are the workers. And the motor pathway is not into back talk."

Editor's note:    :-)

"That said, there is some information flow upwards as information from sensory receptors in the muscles and skin is fed back into the system, reaching both motoneurons and also (eventually) forebrain motor control centers."

So there you have it.
