All movement has some timing attribute.
Maybe it is how long it takes to achieve a particular movement. Maybe it is how long it takes to get the movement started. Maybe it is how long it takes to stop that movement.
From the frame of mechanical engineering, every part of a motor's activity has it's own timing. In an electrical motor, there are parts that are being pulled forward and that same part, then shifts to being pushed forward. And the timing relationships for how long is there a pull and how long there is a push, must be precisely timed.
From the frame of human movement, signals are sent from the brain to certain muscle fibers to contract or relax muscle fibers. The orchestration of which muscle fibers are contracted and for how long and which muscle fibers are relaxed and for how long, is quite complex to realize a simple movement, such as reaching out to grasp a cup of coffee.
In this group, we will be discussing how our brain's timing facilities get involved to achieve proper movement and what can go wrong in that process.
But, our brain's timing facilities also gets involved with sensory access. So, we can also discuss what might be happening that is affecting a variety of sensory access issues.
