This introductory chapter begins with a backstory on the experiments that led to the proposition of two principles to explain the basic properties of motor cortex. One principle concerned the topographic layout of motor cortex, and the other concerned the neuronal mechanism by which motor cortex caused movement. A theoretical framework for understanding at least the outlines of motor cortex is described. An overview of the subsequent chapters is presented.
