Sensation from weight bearing reinforces maintenance of developmental postures such as the prone on elbows position and the hands and knees position. Sensory information is crucial to the mover when interacting with objects and maneu­ vering within an environment. Figure 3-3 depicts how sen­ sation provides the necessary feedback for the body to know whether a task such as reaching or walking was per­ formed and how well it was accomplished. Theories of Motor Control FIGURE 3-1. Motor control emerges from an interaction between the task, the individual, and the environment.

One way of looking at these postural reactions is based on a hierar­ chic view of how the nervous system works, as seen in Figure 3-5. As the nervous system matures, ever higher cen­ ters are responsible for coordinating the infant's postural responses to shifts of center of mass within the base of sup­ port. Figure 3-8 shows a hierarchic representation of how muscle tone, reflexes, and reactions are related to attain­ ment of selective voluntary movement, postural control, 34 SECTION 1 FOUNDATIONS ~ Righting and Equilibrium Reactions Reaction Age at Onset Age at Integration 34 weeks' gestation Birth-2 months Birth-2 months 4-6 months 4-6 months Persists Persists 5 years 34 weeks' gestation 4-6 months 3-4 months 4-6 months 5 years 1-2 years 4 months Persists 6-7 months Persists 7-8 months Persists 9 months Persists 15-17 months Persists 6 months 7-8 months 7-8 months 9-12 months 12-24 months Persists Persists Persists Persists Persists Head righting Neck (immature) Labyrinthine Optical Neck (mature) Trunk righting Protective reactions Righting reactions Body (immature) Body (mature) Landau Protective Integrated primitive reflexes and mass patterns Normal postural tone FIGURE 3-8.

Individuals rarely perform the movement exactly the same way every time. This variability must be part of any model used to explain how posture and movement are controlled. Any movement system must be able to adapt to the changing demands of the individual mover and environ­ ment in which the movement takes place. The individual mover must be able to learn from prior movement experi­ ences. Different theories of motor control emphasize differ­ ent developmental aspects of posture and movement. Development of postural control and balance is embedded in the development of motor control.
