In class we learned that Corollary Discharge Signals from one part of the Nervous System tell a different part of the Nervous System what it's doing. How can we know for certains that these CDS's always work correctly? Our behavior is dependant on their communication within the nervous system- do those who we believe to exhibit abnormal or unsynchronized/uncontrolled behavior have miscommunicating CDS's? Or in fact do we? How can we know for sure that both the Corollary Discharge Signals and the Central Pattern Generators are in fact normal and can that explain why so many accidents happen due to momentary disorientation or uncoordination?
