Summary
Neuroscientist Daniel Wolpert starts from a surprising premise: the brain evolved not to think or feel, but to control movement. Wolpert emphasizes the importance of movement by pointing out that all communication - speech, gestures, writing, sign language - is mediated through muscular contraction. In this entertaining, informative TEDTalk, Wolpert provides a glimpse into human motion and how and why the brain creates it
