82 ;;Quote: movement requires accurate and uninterrupted agreement between the nervous system and peripheral events; unforeseen in advance
84 ;;Quote: arm circles at different positions use completely different innervational schemes
84 ;;Quote: a movement responds as a whole to changes in each small part; response may be spatially and temporally distant from the cause
85 ;;Quote: rhythmical live movements can be determined within a few millimetres by a three or four term Fourier series
85 ;;Quote: if one cycle of a movement takes 1 sec and can be accurately represented by three sinusoids, then it was organized a second beforehand
86 ;;Quote: an nervous impulse reaching a muscle is the resultant of a whole series of central impulses that reach synapses by different routes
91 ;;Quote: coordinated movement has homogeneity and an integrated, structural unity
92 ;;Quote: localization is the anatomical interrelationships between brain functions; i.e., the organization of neural activity?
94 ;;Quote: the cellular localization of muscles and the variations in controlling them denies the cellular localization of automatized movements
94+;;Quote: ten successive repetitions of the same movement require ten different impulses
97 ;;Quote: when a movement begins there is already a motor program for the movement; demonstrated by close approximation to a trigonometric series
105 ;;Quote: both movements and perceptions of an organism are determined topologically; e.g., drawing a star
106 ;;Quote: handwriting characteristics are apparent when writing on a blackboard even though the muscular structure is absolutely different
107 ;;Quote: perceptual recognition and motor reproduction is sensitive to spatial orientation; e.g., drawing or recognizing upside down figures
109 ;;Quote: localization of motor programs is some form of projection of external space
110 ;;Quote: equal simplicity shows difference between template, compass, and ellipsograph
112 ;;Quote: lines of equal simplicity correspond to transitions that related to a devices structure
112 ;;Quote: lines of equal simplicity are due to actions which use the same structural principles or operations
112 ;;Quote: lines of equal simplicity allow indirect analysis of a system's structure
112 ;;Quote: use equal simplicity to distinguish a puppet theatre from a movie house
113 ;;Quote: different arm circles use different muscles but are equally simple, indicates spatial control instead of muscular control
