10 good questions and answers: "Motor systems: the organization of action"

The higher monitored and modulated by two other key motor systems. Which are these
The cerebellum and the basal ganglia
What are the interacting subsystems of neural circuit
Lower motor neurons in the spinal cord and brainstem; upper motor neurons in the cortex and brainstem; the cerebellum; the basal ganglia
What does lower motor neurons
Begin to fire action potentials immediately preceding contraction of the muscles they innervate their activity is correlated with movement of the relevant body part
What do the upper motor neurons do
The cerebral cortex and brainstem provide descending control of local circuitry in the spinal cord and brainstem
The parietal cortex is crucial for sensory motor coordination. What is it called when someone has damage here
Optic ataxia
What does the partial cortex intergate
Visual, eye position and limb position data necessary produce coordinated movement of the eyes and hands
Lesions of the medial cerebellar vermis result in what
Truncal ataxia (uncoordinated), like when you are druk movement
Damage of the lateral cerbellum results in
Appendicular ataxie; disruption  the sensory coordinates of limb movements
What sort of cognitive tasks is the cerebellum involved in
Non-motor learning, attention, timing and verbal working memory
In what area is damage linked to ideational and ideomotor apraxie
Damage in the parietal and premotor cortex
