MOVEMENT CHAINING

first proposed by Sir Charles Sherrington, a British neurophysiologist (1857 - 1952) who implied that the final movement in a sequence will act as the stimulus to initiate the next.

MOVEMENT CHAINING: "The concept of movement chaining implies that one motor function will trigger the next motor function and that this will start a chain reaction between motor neurons. "
