Suggested Responses: Students should note that early researchers, like Gesell, believed that brain maturation led directly to motor ability. Physical abilities were viewed as outcomes of neural growth. They should contrast this with the more recent dynamic systems theory which holds that physical activity, brain development, and cognitive development are interrelated and can bidirectionally influence one another. Students should discuss how specific movements stimulate the organization of neural clusters and, eventually, neural maps in the brain. Further, they should note that movement stimulates the understanding of concepts, such as location.
