Sensorimotor functions are the interplay of sensory and motor performance to control and monitor movements based on sensory feedback. The perception of a stimulus by a sensory organ and the execution of appropriate motor behaviour are directly related and run in parallel, such as the perception of a stimulus via the eye and the targeted control of arm movements. For people with sensorimotor disorders, independantly coping with everyday life is usually considerably more difficult.
Why sensomotor functions is an important criterion for neuropsychology?
Sensomotor functions constitute the interaction of sensomotor and motor abilities. What is meant by this is the immediate management and control of movements as the result of sensory feedback.
There is a direct connection between the perception of a stimulus by a sensory organ and the appropriate motor behavior; these processes operate in parallel, as for example in the perception of a stimulus via the eye and the deliberate control of arm movements.
