Abstract : The major theoretical accomplishment of this research effort is the application of organizational concepts derived from control theory to models of motor control. Experimental results of this effort include: (1) a demonstration that there is genuine interactivity of two limbs under a number of bimanual conditions, (2) evidence that rapid error corrections are dependent on efference rather than on afferent input indicating the existence of internal feedback that monitors efferent commands, (3) descriptions of spatial orientations within egocentric space, and (4) specification of the role of organizational processes in motor learning and control.
