The way in which we use sensory feedback, conscious or unconscious, from the limbs to guide willed movements is debated. Sensations from sensitive receptors in skin, subcutaneous tissues, joints and muscles are available. They are despatched to the spinal cord, cerebellum, cerebral cortex and to some extent to the basal ganglia, all of which are involved in controlling movement. Yet the use that is made of this information is not clear. © 1984 Elsevier Science Publishers B.V., Amsterdam.
