Integration of the sensorimotor system. The sensorimotor system integrates the afferent, efferent, and central nervous system, and is controlled by two control systems: feedback control and feedforward control. Feedback control involves the sensory processing, in which the cerebellar system regulates the visual, vestibular and somatosensory (i.e., proprioception, pain…etc.) inputs. The sensory feedback is conveyed to the cortex to be processed, and the reactive motor command is descended to the muscle properties. Feedforward control is described as an anticipatory action with a direct descending command without sensory feedback
