sensory-motor integration

Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

The process by which the sensory and motor systems communicate and coordinate with each other. It involves stimulus reception and transmission to the central nervous system (CNS) where the stimulus is interpreted. The CNS then determines which response to make and transmits its instructions as nerve impulses along a motor neurone to the appropriate effector (e.g. a group of muscle fibres), which carries out the response.
