Brain taht Gives Order

Muscle and Brain

It is the muscles that move our body directly, but it is the brain to give orders so that the muscles move just as wanted.

To do skillful movement, the situation must be appropriately recognized, how to do must be judged in a moment, the movements are chosen momentarily, and the optimum exercise orders must be given to the muscles.

All this process is performed in the brain.


The exercise orders are something like the computer program telling which muscle to move, when ane how strong it should move.
They are given by the brain and conveyed through many nerve cells to the muscles.

Things That the Brain Learned

A skillful athlete is a person whose brain gives the most suitabl exercise orders.
Such expression as “good moter nerve”, “clever motion”, “improvement” mean the goodness of the brain.
The condition that you can play something without thinking after the training is called “body learned” but the state is “brain learned” actually.
