This chapter compares the psychoanalytical and sensorimotor control theories of action and the psychodynamic and sensorimotor models of mental functioning. It examines Sigmund Freud's concept of ‘indication of reality’, which he used to characterize the function of the secondary process of mental processing, and suggests that this concept parallels the modern notion of ‘efference copy’. This chapter suggests that Freud's model of secondary process functioning has an inhibiting effect on primary processes.

Keywords:   action, psychoanalytical control, sensorimotor control, Sigmund Freud, reality, mental processing, efference copy
