It is believed that the body uses muscles to perform any and all physical tasks, but there has been little discussion as to the invitation of those muscle functions in the human body for form and response. In this article, we will not only look at muscle function in a new light but also examine the cognitive organization of infants as they transition to a more controlled adult manipulation of movement. It is important to note that involuntary muscle functions (ie, cardiac and respiratory) and sub-senses (ie, balance and counterbalance) should remain as a subconscious and automatic response in the nervous system. Skeletal muscles as well as involuntary muscles can be manipulated to become an automatic and deliberate cognitive response depending on the individual’s stage of development.
