Motor control refers to information processing related activities carried out by the central nervous system that organize the musculoskeletal system to create coordinated movements and skilled actions. Thus the study of motor control involves studying perception and cognition, feedback processes, and biomechanics, to name a few. The name also refers to a field within neuroscience that analyzes how people, animals and their nervous system controls movement.
