      • Motor programme decoded to the working memory (STM)
    • Effector Control
      • The brain sends impulses via the nervous system to the working muscles
        • e.g. The decision is to catch the ball, which is sent from the brain to the muscles.
    • Effectors
      • Muscles receive the impulses and perform the action e.g. the ball is caught.
