Information and planning takes place in the cortex, and it sends a signal down the spinal tract to activate it. But this signal also goes to the inferior olive and reaches the cerebellum. And the cerebellum also gets feedback from actual movement that is taking place. The cerebellum compares what you intend to what is actually taking place, generates an error which is then able to correct your movement while it is actually taking place. This simple circuit actually works in a very complex way, which we are all seeking to understand, to produce the smooth effect of our skilled movements as human beings. - Farid Youssef
My theory is based on searching for the automatic golf swing motion in that all depends on human body limitations rather that possibilities. In order to make a movement automatic there must not be any free capability left in a specific motion, otherwise timing issues come along. Less timing issues = less small thoughts and concepts = more coordinated motion = more repeatability and consistency - this is the motto of the Biokinetic Golf Swing Theory.

Mechanics of Instinct
Type your paragraph here.
The motor cortex executes the plan formed by the somatosensory cortex but does so with "ballistic" impulses down the motor pyramid of the spinal cord. On the way down, the cerebellum "modulates" these crude impulses by adding finesseful directional and amplitude definition to the whole body action - responsive to the shifting or changing body-in-space or the target-in-the-world. - Geoff Magnum
I term this enterprise "The Mechanics of Instinct" meaning not that golfers require a full blown education in neuroscience, but that golfers need to know in simple terms how to use their innate processes accurately and effectively. Conscious techniques use inappropriate processes of the brain for perception - movement action, and using these processes instead of the instinctive and non-conscious processes both causes harm and depletes available resources for effective action. - Geoff Mangum
Everything must be made as simple as possible, but not simpler."
