Corollary discharge signals are composed of internal signals within the nervous system in which its function is to coordinate what's going on in the central pattern generators. Corollary discharge determines what kind of behavior to be expressed. That is probably why we all show various kinds of behavior since each of our corollary discharge signals seem to be different.

We are all generally composed of similar substances and have similar functions. However, each of us express various kinds of behavior and have differnt experiences. Some of us feel nauseous when we are on boats and some of us feel fine. This is because although we may be in the same environment, our nervous systems have different corollary discharge signals so that we each may have varied experiences. Corollary discharge signals are also important in the correlation with movement thorugh the nervous system. In walking we are able to to use corollary discharge signals which enable us to walk in a coordinated pattern (left leg out first then right leg out next..). The corollary discharge signals allow us to distinguish the left leg from the right leg in walking. We all have this general tendency in walking but we each may have dffernt ways in walking. In a sense we are all the same in our makeup but different in how each of our components work at different times which makes every individual unique in his/her behavioral patterns.

The interaction between sensory input signals and corollary discharge signals allow us to observe behavior which is influenced by these conflicting signals. In a moving car, sensory input signals report that the individual is moving all over the place while the corollary discharge signals report that nothing is moving. These conflicting signals may result in car sickness but differs with each individual.

Corollary discharge signals which interact with central pattern generators in the nervous system help make a little more sense of how the nervous system works in determining behavior. The choice of what behavior to express also depends on corollary discharge signals. We now know that the nervous system has the capability to produce outputs not necessarily having to do with sensory inputs and that the nervous system is organized in a way that we can not predict the specific input. This allows for individuals to express bhavior in different ways to which the corollary discharge signals respond and interact with the nervous system to produce behavioral outputs.

Pretty good summary of various things we talked about. Yes, indeed, corollary discharge signals can help explain why people are different from one another. Can imagine significance for additional aspects of behavior? things you have yourself experience, wondered about? PG
