Kids will learn to move by mimicking us, the parents: there are really mirror neurons throughout the whole brain, but are dominant in frontal lobr. M1 and sma allow for rapid cortico communication. This is exclusively related to monkeys, anyone with an sma lesion will not have the co-ordination loss that monkeys have: examples with monkeys. Clear sheet of plastic, well with food reward item. In order to grab it, has to poke up from bottom and grab it with other limb. Sends fewer outputs to spinal cord then m1 and sma. Does not have direct control over alpha motor neurons. Information has to be combined with sma or m1. Strong connections with reticular formation, red nuclei, and indirectly to the cerebellum. May be involved in externally triggered events. Opposite of sma, responding to internal events. If someone walks in front of the car, that is a external event. Will connect with cerebellum to help us modify a movement.
