VISION AND MOVEMENT
The coordination of "Vision and Movement" that allows Olympic
gold medalist Greg Louganis to perform his balletic dives is

interprets what the eyes see. Although scientists disagree on

information travels via neural pathways to the spinal core, where
muscles responsible for movement are instructed.
