From my experience, when someone learns about the Primary motor cortex (M1) for the first time, they tend to form an image in their mind that the M1 is somewhat like a piano keyboard. When you press a key, it results in a contraction of a particular muscle.

However, this one-to-one representation is simply not the case. For example, if we were to compare the M1 to a piano keyboard, then when you press an M1 key, it would play a whole chord, if not a complete melody. This is because, generally speaking, it requires less mental effort (and less M1 activation) to perform movements we do all the time and more effort (and more M1 activation) to perform atypical movements. Read more about it in my recent article, Baseworks Distributed Activation: the M1 on Fire.

Of course, there is also the factor of how many movement programming and execution aspects are outside our awareness.

In Baseworks, we use many applications (such as Distributed Activation, Micromovements, Gridlines & Symmetry, and Fixing-Separating-Isolating) that actually allow us to use our M1 more like a keyboard. We practice certain movements that look like they should have their own key (but in reality, they do not) until they, hopefully, “grow” their dedicated key.

In this VS, we will look at some key movements that, in Baseworks, we aim to assign to their dedicated M1 keys.

This VS will be approximately 20% theory and 80% practice.

Whereas the Online Practice Sessions are designed to provide the opportunity to develop your practice through repetition, the Virtual Sessions are designed to provide real-time feedback and insight, which can then be re-applied during the Online Practice Sessions.

The level of interactivity in the Virtual Sessions is dependent on the interest/involvement of the participants and may vary from session to session.

Each virtual session lasts from 60 to 90 minutes.
