“Motor Control” is an expression of movement that is only partially…about the motor

While we have known for decades that movement is an interaction of person-task-environment (oversimplified), we still call the control of movement, “motor control”. Why? Many motors actually move in a very predictable pattern without much variability at all. That is neither representative-of or an admirable quality for the human movement system. I will not be so bold as to offer an absolute answer to what term is better than motor control, but in early morning writings today I have been toying with “Interactive Control”. Open to thoughts about this term and about my “issue” with motor control.
