Abstract : A theory is presented on voluntary learned and unlearned motor movement. The basic elements on motor control are presented, analyzed, and discussed. These include fundamental reflexes, gamma-muscle spindle servo mechanism, reticular system, cerebellum, and higher brain centers. The interrelations between the above elements and systems are examined in detail as a basis of the theory presented. The theory follows the transition from unlearned to learned movement and demonstrates how detailed control may be modified by the cerebellum and associated areas.
