KNES 365 Lecture 1 Intro & Course Syllabus
Thursday September 5, 2019
Question: How are skilled movements coordinated by the nervous system?
o Sensory input from multiple sources (somatosensory, visual, and
vestibular) gets integrated with descending motor commands to
control the output of motor neurons.
Our body (‘soma’ Greek) contains sensors that detect mechanical forces
3 main sources of sensory input:
o somatosensory system
includes skin receptors, muscle spindles, Golgi tendon organs, and joints/ligaments
o visual system
o vestibular system
Our inner ear contains acceleration sensors that tell us about gravity and head motion…
The motor system (muscles) is responsible for movements
Why should you care?
o Will help us understand and treat (cure?) neurological disorders affecting sensorimotor function like
Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), and strokes
o Everyone experiences progressive sensorimotor impairment as they age
o It has important applications in new technologies.
