Nervous system architecture: from the output side

Welcome to the on-line forum associated with the Biology 202 at Bryn Mawr College. Its a way to keep conversations going between course meetings, and to do so in a way that makes our conversations available to other who may in turn have interesting thoughts to contribute to them. You're welcome to post here any thoughts that have arisen during the course this week (and to respond to thoughts others have posted).

We've begun to move on from the building blocks of the nervous system to its architecture.  So if you need something to get you started ... In what ways do reafferent loops, central pattern generation, and/or corollary discharge help us further bridge the gap between neurons and behavior?  What new questions do they in turn raise?
