Theories of Motor Control Two different theories 1. Motor Program based theory 2. Dynamic Pattern theory (Dynamical Systems theory) 1. Memory-based mechanism that controls coordinated  movement. 2. Describes and explains coordinated movement control  by emphasizing the role of information in the  environment and mechanical properties of the body and  limbs.

Dynamic Pattern Theory (dynamical system) Motor control system operates on the basis of  non-linear dynamics: Behavioral changes are not always continuous Behavior is specified by the environment and the  characteristics of the task Behaviors are self-organized
